Libyan rebels have rejected a proposal for a cease-fire by the African Union. The proposition also calls for the provision of humanitarian aid, and political dialogue between Moammar Gadhafi’s regime and the opposition, The Wall Street Journal reports.

NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen also reacted to the cease-fire proposal, noting Gadhafi’s regime “did not keep [its] promises” when it announced cease-fires in the past, Reuters reports.

Defense ministers of Italy, Britain and France were set to meet on Tuesday (April 12) to discuss stepping up military action against Gadhafi’s regime, Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini said on Monday (April 11), according to Reuters.
