BRUSSELS - NATO will continue to target Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's forces as long as they continue to threaten civilians, a NATO official said on Monday.

South African President Jacob Zuma has urged NATO to stop air strikes on government targets to give a ceasefire "a chance", after Gaddafi accepted an African Union roadmap for ending the conflict in Libya including an immediate ceasefire.

"We will continue to put pressure on forces threatening civilians and our operations will continue," a NATO official told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity.
