A Libyan national conference aimed at drawing up a roadmap towards elections has been postponed because of fighting raging near the capital, the United Nations said Tuesday.

"We cannot ask people to take part in the conference during gunfire and air strikes," UN envoy Ghassan Salame said, expressing hope the meeting which had been scheduled for next week would take place "as soon as possible".
