Gaddafi forces given surrender deadline

NTC vows to hold fire for four days before launching military assault on loyalists.

    In Sirte, home town of deposed Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, his loyalists have been given four days to surrender.

    Giving  the ultimatum at a press conference on Tuesday, Mustafa Abdul Jalil, the head of Libya's National Transitional Council said: "By Saturday, if there are no peaceful indications for implementing this, we will decide this matter militarily.

    "We do not wish to do so but we cannot wait longer."
