Libyan opposition offers ceasefire

Libyan opposition offers ceasefire, as battles for territory continue.

    On the battlefields of Libya, it appears the fighting has reached something of an impasse. Pro-Gaddafi forces are again reported to be attacking pro-democracy positions in the third city of Misurata, while the two sides are also engaged in a struggle for territory near the key port of Brega.

    In a new development, the opposition today offered a conditional ceasefire.
