Protesters in Benghazi say Gadhafi must go

BENGHAZI, Libya (AP) - A team from the African Union, trying to achieve a cease-fire in Libya, has arrived in the rebel stronghold of Benghazi.
But outside their hotel, more than 1,000 demonstrators chanted anti-Gadhafi slogans. Their message is that there can be no peace in Libya until the longtime leader gives up power.
The AU delegation said after talks in Tripoli yesterday that Gadhafi accepted their "road map" for a cease-fire. The meeting came hours after NATO airstrikes battered Gadhafi's tanks, helping the rebels push back government troops who had been advancing toward Benghazi.
