At least two sons of Muammar al-Qaddafi are reportedly proposing a resolution to the ongoing Libyan conflict that would push their father aside to make way for a transition to a constitutional democracy, a diplomat and a Libyan official said Sunday.
It’s not immediately clear whether Qaddafi, 68, backs the proposal by his sons, Seif and Saadi al-Qaddafi, although one person close to the son told the New York Times that the father appeared willing to go along with the plan.

GENEVA – The European Union slapped its own arms embargo, visa ban and other sanctions Monday on Libyan leader Moammar Qaddafi’s regime, part of an escalating global effort to halt his bloody crackdown on critics in the North African nation.
In a series of fast-paced developments, France pledged to send two planes with humanitarian aid to Libya’s opposition stronghold of Benghazi while Germany mulled a two-month cutoff of oil payments to Qaddafi’s regime. The moves came after days of increasing protest against the hundreds, and potentially thousands, of deaths caused by Qaddafi’s military resistance against the popular uprising in his country.
EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said the European measures, including a freeze on assets, aimed to reinforced the U.N. Security Council-mandated sanctions against Libya approved over the weekend.

The installation of a memorial bust of Soviet dictator Josef Stalin in Bedford, Va., next to Western Allied leaders in World War II has ignited a firestorm of controversy and threatened to tear apart the small town 200 miles south of the nation’s capital.
Opponents of the bronze sculpture say it has no right to be placed in the National D-Day Memorial next to the busts of Presidents Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill because Stalin’s murderous rule led to the deaths of at least 20 million people, surpassing even the number of murders under Hitler’s bloody reign.
The Bedford board of supervisors voted unanimously late last month to ask the National D-Day Memorial Foundation to lose the bust. A group called the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation has an electronic petition calling on the memorial overseers to remove the bust. Several newspaper editorials have criticized the bust.
