NATO to continue airstrikes to aid Libya civilians
"We will continue to put pressure on forces threatening civilians and our operations will continue," a NATO official told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity.
"Our aircraft are still flying and when we see a threat to civilians, we will engage," the official said.
The official said Libyan government forces shelled the Libyan city of Misrata on Monday morning.
"It does not appear that this indication of a peace deal has any substance at this point," the official said.
Earlier on Monday, NATO said it had taken note of reports of the African Union ceasefire proposal, adding it welcomed all contributions to the international effort aimed at stopping violence against the civilian population.
