TRIPOLI/BRUSSELS (Reuters) – NATO said on Wednesday it had extended its Libyan mission for a further 90 days, after Muammar Gaddafi made it clear he would not step down, dashing hopes of a negotiated end to the uprising against his rule.

The 28-member alliance originally took over a campaign of air strikes, the enforcement of a no-fly zone and an arms embargo on Libya, to protect rebellious civilians from attack by Gaddafi’s forces, in late March for 90 days.

“NATO and partners have just decided to extend our mission for Libya for another 90 days,” NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said in a statement.

“This decision sends a clear message to the Gaddafi regime: We are determined to continue our operation to protect the people of Libya.”
