Clinton says unimpressed by Libya cease-fire words

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Friday the United States was not impressed by words and the Libyan government would need to show actions demonstrating a ceasefire.

"We are going to be not responsive or impressed by words, we would have to see actions on the ground and that is not yet at all clear," Clinton said. "We will continue to work with our partners in the international community to press (Muammar) Gaddafi to leave and to support the legitimate aspirations of the Libyan people."
