Senegal's Wade offers to help Gaddafi step aside

BENGHAZI, Libya - Senegalese President Abdoulaye Wade appealed to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi on Thursday to step down, and offered to help ease his former ally's exit from power.
"It is in your own interest and the interest of all the Libyan people that you leave power in Libya and never dream of coming back to power," Wade said during a visit to the rebel-held eastern Libyan city of Benghazi.
