White House says not recognizing Libya ceasefire

RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - The United States said on Sunday it would not recognize a ceasefire declared by Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi’s forces.

“Our view at this point...is that it isn’t true, or has been immediately violated,” White House National Security Adviser Tom Donilon told reporters. Donilon also said that the United States and its allies had a “good first day” in their intervention in Libya.
