Report: Libyan rebels say AU peace plan means Gaddafi exit

MALABO - Libyan rebels on Saturday welcomed a peace proposal by the African Union, saying they interpreted it as meaning Muammar Gaddafi should play no further role in the country's leadership.
AU leaders on Friday offered to host immediate talks between the two Libyan sides on a ceasefire and a process of transition towards a democratic government, but left open the question over Gaddafi's future role in the country.
