Senior Libyan official Abdelrahman al-Zawi, a member of embattled leader Moamer Gaddafi's inner circle, landed in Cairo on Wednesday, an airport official told AFP.

Major General Zawi, who is responsible for logistics and supplies, arrived in Cairo on board a Libyan private plane, as rebels in Libya fought to overthrow Gaddafi.

Gaddafi on Tuesday had called Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou, the Greek leader's office said. In the discussion, Papandreou had told Gaddafi to seek a peaceful resolution to the rebel uprising against his government.
