DEAUVILLE, France - The United States does not see Libya's latest ceasefire offer as credible because it is not accompanied by action, White House deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes said on Thursday.

Libya was not complying with UN demands, so the United States would continue with the military campaign, Rhodes told reporters at the G8 summit in France.

Libya's forces were still in the mode of attacking population centers and troops were at barracks, Rhodes said.
