A Libyan opposition envoy says the rebels' main goal is to drive Moammar Gadhafi from power and put him on trial, not have him killed.

Ali Zeidan, a Europe-based envoy for the Libyan National Transitional Council, told The Associated Press in an interview that airstrikes led by France, Britain and the United States have helped the opposition. He says the rebels are respecting a U.N.-sought cease-fire unless they are fired upon.

He says the rebels don't want any international forces to invade Libya, saying "we are able to deal with Gadhafi's forces by ourselves."

Zeidan, who is based in Munich, spoke Monday ahead of meetings with French officials. French President Nicolas Sarkozy has been an early backer of the Libyan opposition.
