A new audio message from former Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi says what is happening in Libya is a “charade” aided by NATO airstrikes, which will not last forever.
The message was broadcast Tuesday on Syria’s Al-Rai television. The station has carried several messages from Gadhafi, who has not been seen since provisional authority forces seized the capital, Tripoli, last month.
Meanwhile, Libya’s interim government says its forces have captured the airport and other locations in the southern desert city of Sabha, one of Gadhafi’s last remaining strongholds.
A military spokesman for the National Transitional Council, Colonel Ahmed Bani, said Monday that NTC flags are flying over the airport, an old Italian fort and other strategic buildings inside Sabha.
