WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A stalemate appears to be emerging in Libya between rebels and forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, a top U.S. general told Congress on Thursday.

“I would agree with that at present on the ground,” said General Carter Ham, the commander of U.S. Africa Command, when asked at Senate hearing whether he believed there was a stalemate or an emerging stalemate in Libya.
