UNITED NATIONS -- The U.N. Secretary-General says representatives of Moammar Gadhafi's government and the Libyan opposition will attend an African Union meeting in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on Friday.

The meeting is part of an effort to reach a cease-fire and political solution in Libya.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told the Security Council on Thursday there is no evidence that Libyan officials have instituted a cease-fire as they claim. He says his special envoy has warned Gadhafi government officials that the 15-member council is "prepared to take additional measures" if they do not respect U.N. resolutions calling for a cease-fire.

The U.N. chief is also expressing concerns about the North African country's humanitarian situation, and protection of civilians.
