NATO launches new attack in Tripoli

The renewed diplomatic efforts to end Libya's civil war seemed to be gaining momentum, while thunderous airstrikes Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) once again beat the residential complex of Moammar Gadhafi in Tripoli. Officials in the capital said they are open to international efforts that would end four months of fighting between forces loyal to the old leader and the rebels who control the eastern third of the country, plus a few enclaves in the West.

But they insist that Gadhafi will not yield to international pressure to resign. "We do not accept anything I can do against him. He is the limit in our discussions, "said Prime Minister al-Baghdadi al-Mahmudi. Any agreement which includes the division of the country is also unacceptable, he said.

In an interview published by Italian daily Corriere della Sera, Saif al-Islam Gadhafi (son of Libyan leader) said the international involvement in elections could be organized in a period of three months. Al-Islam said he would resign if his father lost the elections, but it was something he considered unlikely.

However, the son of Libyan leader acknowledged that "my father's regime, as developed since 1969, is dead," and noted that included a federal state with strong local autonomy and a weak central government in Tripoli. In Washington, State Department spokesman, Victoria Nuland, rejected the idea of elections in Libya.

"It's a bit late for any proposed Gadhafi and his circle of democratic change. It is time for him to go. " Gadhafi's son, who was once considered the successor of his father, has served as one of its chief spokesmen during the conflict. Like Gadhafi himself, little has been heard from him in recent weeks.

Although my father will not seek exile, internationally supervised elections could provide a living out chaos and actualmentehijo Libya Muammar Gadhafi spokesman.
