    Al Jazeera television said Libyan rebels rejected an offer by Muammar Gadhafi on Monday to hold a parliament meeting to work out a deal under which he would step down.

    According to the report, Gadhafi wanted guarantees of personal safety for him and his family as well as a pledge that they not be put on trial.
