As Libyan anti-government forces re-group after a rapid retreat eastward Thursday, a rebel spokesman said today the opposition will accept a ceasefire if Moammar Gadhafi meets conditions including pulling his forces back out of cities.

Despite seizing the momentum on the ground, two key members of Gadhafi's inner circle defected this week, and today there are reports that a senior aide to Gadhafi's son was in London to meet with British officials.  We have the latest and analysis with the BBC's Jon Leyne in Benghazi, Libya.
