UNITED NATIONS - Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi will face "swift and sure consequences including military action" if he ignores demands for a ceasefire, the US envoy to the United Nations said on Friday.

In an interview on CNN television, Ambassador Susan Rice said that Gaddafi, whose forces have been advancing on the rebel-held eastern city of Benghazi, was in violation of a UN Security Council resolution adopted on Thursday, which called for an immediate ceasefire and banned all flights over Libya.
