LONDON - Britain said on Monday that any ceasefire in Libya must be genuine and that it would continue to take military action as required to protect civilians.

"We will continue to take military action as required to protect civilians," a spokesman for Prime Minister David Cameron said in response to comments by South African President Jacob Zuma, head of an African Union peace mission, that Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi had accepted a peace 'road map'.

"Any ceasefire deal needs to be a genuine ceasefire. That can only be judged by Gaddafi's actions rather than his words or the words of anyone else for that matter," the spokesman said.
