Libyan rebels swiftly reject African Union peace plan

Libyan opposition leaders on Monday rejected an African Union "road map" for making peace with Moammar Gadhafi, saying that nothing short of the strongman's immediate resignation would satisfy them. The proposal, which Gadhafi reportedly endorsed Sunday, called for a cease-fire in the nearly two-month-old conflict, suspension of the NATO airstrikes and talks between the sides on political reforms.
