South Africa says it is not facilitating Muammar Gaddafi's exit from Libya after rebels swept into Tripoli.

The country's Foreign Ministry denied rumors that South Africa had sent aircraft to Libya for Ghaddafi's exit. The ministry also says the Libyan leader "will not ask to come here", and added if Ghaddafi's government fails, there is no government. South African President Jacob Zuma has spearheaded a mediation effort by the African Union but his two personal visits to Libya have failed to produce a tangible outcome. Zuma has been critical of NATO air strikes saying the UN resolution authorizing intervention has been abused.
