BENGHAZI - The UN envoy to Libya will discuss with rebel leaders on Monday informal plans for a negotiated end to the war as Western powers ramp up diplomatic and military pressure on Muammar Gaddafi to step down.

Abdul Elah al-Khatib arrived in the eastern rebel stronghold of Benghazi on Monday, rebels said, as a diplomatic push to end the conflict gathers steam.

In an apparent further sign of moves towards a political solution, a senior rebel leader was quoted as saying that Gaddafi and his family could remain in Libya provided they gave up power.

A European diplomat said last week that Khatib would try to persuade warring parties in Libya to accept an informal plan that envisages a ceasefire followed by the creation of an interim power-sharing government, but with no role for Gaddafi.
