Arab League says Chavez plan for Libya only under review

CAIRO (Reuters) - Arab League chief Amr Moussa said on Thursday a plan proposed by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to resolve the crisis in Libya was merely "under consideration" and it was up to Venezuela to release details.

The online edition of Libya's Yosberides newspaper earlier on Thursday reported that Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi had agreed to the proposal floated by his ally Chavez.

"It is a Venezuelan proposal and sent to us and we are considering it and that is all," Moussa told Reuters after meeting visiting Turkish President Abdullah Gul.
