UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's special envoy to Libya said Monday the conflict in the North African country appears to be continuing indefinitely.

"At this time, it is still very difficult to know how long it will take for the Libyan conflict to be resolved," Abdelilah Al-Khatib, Ban's special envoy for Libya, said.

Al-Khatib's statement came as he briefed the UN Security Council on his recent mission to Libya, where he met with both Gaddafi's government in Tripoli and the rebel Interim Transitional National Council.

NATO's daily report showed that its aircraft flew 154 sorties over Libya on Sunday.

According to the report, NATO planes took off 154 times and performed 58 "strike sorties" on Sunday, the fourth day since the alliance assumed full control over the military campaign against Libya.

In the first four days of the NATO mission, NATO aircraft have conducted a total of 701 sorties and 276 "strike sorties".
