WASHINGTON - US Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said on Tuesday that the Obama administration has not ruled out arming he rebels fighting to oust Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

"We have not made that decision, but we've not certainly ruled that out," she said in an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America" program.

Rice also told ABC there was no indication that Gaddafi is prepared to leave power without continued pressure from the international community.

Referring to reports that members of Gaddafi's inner circle are reaching out to the West, she said: "We will be more persuaded by actions rather than prospects or feelers."
