There have been calls from the United Nations Secretary-General, for a real ceasefire in Libya.

Ban Ki-moon spoke by telephone to the Libyan Prime Minister, Al Baghdadi Ali al-Mahmoudi, and urged him to start negotiations to bring about a democratic government.

Libya has been engulfed by fighting since February, when a pro-democracy movement opposed to the regime of Muammar al-Qadhafi emerged.
