Libya’s Gaddafi loyalists have rejected an ultimatum by rebels that called for their surrender or else threatened a major new attack on Sirte, Gaddafi’s birthplace and final stronghold. “No dignified honorable nation would accept an ultimatum from armed gangs,” a regime spokesman told the Associated Press on Wednesday. Instead, the spokesman, Moussa Ibrahim, offered to send Muammar Gaddafi as an intermediary, an idea that rebels swiftly rejected. An attack on Sirte is planned for Saturday if a truce is not reached.
