Anti-Gaddafi figures say form national council

BENGHAZI, Libya, Feb 27 (Reuters) - Opponents of Muammar Gaddafi in eastern Libya said on Sunday they had formed a National Libyan Council, saying it was not an interim government but described it as the face of the revolution.

A spokesman for the new council said he saw no room for any negotiation with Gaddafi’s government.

Opponents of Gaddafi, speaking in a news conference after a meeting to discuss forming a council that would support the movement to oust the Libyan leader, described an interim government announced by the former justice minister was his own “personal view”.
