Two of Muammar Gaddafi’s sons have given contrasting messages to the media, with one saying he would negotiate surrender and another promising a fight to the death.
Speaking to al Aribiya television, Saadi Gaddafi said he had been given the go-ahead by his father to begin talks to end the conflict.
“We were talking about negotiations based on ending bloodshed,” he said.
It was a development welcomed by the National Transitional Council (NTC), ahead of a summit in Paris that will discuss the future of Libya without Colonel Gaddafi.
Saadi also claimed he was prepared to give himself up in order to help end the six-month long conflict.
