Rebels say the plan does not go far enough to end Muammar Gaddafi's four-decade rule.
Gaddafi's government says the rejection shows what they're really about.
"The rebels' refusal of the roadmap proves that they are not worthy
partners in any peace negotiations; it proves that they are not united;
it proves that they don't really want peace and radical change; they are
scared, I assure you. They are scared of any peaceful political change
because they know they have lost any credibility with the Libyan people
since the 19th of March."
So the fighting continues.
African leaders who devised the roadmap said a peaceful solution to Libya's conflict must be found.
"The most important thing that concerns us is to continue on this path
to find a solution that rescues all of the Libyan people, this is our
goal and we are continuing to pursue it. Chairman Jean Pink will visit
Doha, God willing, and will present and discuss the African plan."
Nato continued its air raids with pressure for it to step up it's bombing campaign.
An international group of foreign ministers are meeting in Qatar on Wednesday to discuss Libya's future.
