    G8 summit: Sarkozy offers Libya's Gaddafi 'options'

    French President Nicolas Sarkozy has urged Libya's Col Muammar Gaddafi to step down as "all options are open".

    "We are not saying that Gaddafi needs to be exiled. He must leave power and the quicker he does it, the greater his choice," Mr Sarkozy told journalists.

    He is hosting a meeting of leaders from the G8 group of wealthy nations in the northern French resort of Deauville.

    'Plane ticket'
    Mr Sarkozy defended Nato's intervention in Libya when he spoke to journalists on Thursday evening, saying "had we not stepped in [the rebel stronghold of] Benghazi would have been wiped off the map".

    He thanked Russia for not blocking the UN resolution authorising force despite Moscow's misgivings, and said Russian President Dmitry Medvedev understood that "the blame lies with Col Gaddafi" and he had said so "frankly and unambiguously".

    He said the later Col Gaddafi stood down, "the shorter the list of his possible destinations".
    If Col Gaddafi stepped down and withdrew his forces quickly, President Sarkozy said, "all options are open".

    "Then we'll look at what the name should be on the plane ticket and even what class he should travel," he joked.

    African leaders have geared up to demand an outright end to NATO air strikes on Libya, accusing the West of sidelining African nations in efforts to end a conflict on their home turf.

    "Some international players seem to be denying Africa any significant role in the seach for a solution to the Libyan conflict," said African Union Commission chief Jean Ping at a summit in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa.

    "Africa is not going to be reduced to the status of an observer of its own calamities."

    He added that the AU would call for an end to NATO operations in Libya and demand that its roadmap be used as a basis for a resolution to the conflict.
