CORRECTED: Kadhafi agrees to stay out of Libya talks: AU panel
Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi has agreed to stay out of negotiations on ending his country's four-month conflict, African leaders said in a communique after talks Sunday in South Africa.
The African Union panel on Libya "welcomes Colonel Kadhafi's acceptance of not being part of the negotiations process," the statement said, without elaborating.
AU peace and security commissioner Ramtane Lamamra read out the communique but refused to take questions.
