Gaddafi regime officials were in talks with a special UN envoy on Tuesday night as rebels claimed they would take Tripoli by the end of the month and the US said the dictator’s “days are numbered”.

Abdel-Elah al-Khatib, the former Jordanian foreign minister appointed by the United Nations to try to negotiate an end to the conflict, said he was meeting representatives of both sides of the Libyan conflict in Tunisia.

The rebel leaders’ Transitional National Council denied that its representatives were involved, but no such claim came from the Gaddafi regime.

The rebels now believe they have no need to offer concessions on their demand for Col Gaddafi to leave Libya or surrender, after cutting off his supply lines in the last four days.
