Libyan leader Moammar Gadaffi agrees to a deal with African Union to end conflict

Gadaffi greets reporters in Tripoli today
Although no final resolution is known yet and the details of the agreement were not available, Gadaffi has accepted a plan to end the armed conflict in his nation, South African President Jacob Zuma told the press today.

Negotiations are still in progress in Tripoli between Gadaffi and a delegation of the African Union. The deal will include an end to NATO airstrikes aimed at enforcing a no-fly zone and targeting government forces, and an immediate ceasefire between the two factions. On Monday the African Union representatives will fly to Benghazi to meet with opposition leaders in the rebel stronghold.

Hopefully this time negotiation will take precedence over the use of force, because as we well know, the use of force does not protect innocent lives. Really, it doesn't.
