Libyan rebels not recognised as the new government by the AU
27 August 2011
President Jacob Zuma says the African Union will not yet recognise Libyan rebels as the new government of Libya.
Zuma called for an immediate ceasefire and said Tripoli was not yet under full rebel control.
He spoke as AU leaders met in the Ethiopian capital to discuss what action they should take regarding Libya.
The rebels have already been recognised as the legitimate authority by most of the world.
