Protesters take part in an anti-Gaddafi demonstration outside the hotel where representatives of the African Union were meeting leaders of Libya's rebel leadership in Benghazi, April 11, 2011. An African bid to halt Libya's civil war collapsed within hours on Monday, after Muammar Gaddafi's forces shelled a besieged city and rebels said there could be no deal unless he was toppled. The rebel rejection came less than 24 hours after South African President Jacob Zuma, head of an African Union mission, said Gaddafi had accepted the plan, including a ceasefire proposal for the conflict in the North African desert state.
