A defiant Colonel Gaddafi today denied he had fled Libya claiming he ‘won’t leave the land of his ancestors’.
From his hiding place the former leader told Syrian TV station Al Rai in an audio message he has not escaped to neighbouring Niger and maintains he is still in the country he led for 42 years.
Despite the dramatic collapse of his rule he also said that his army is in place to wrestle the country back from the rebels.
In an angry outburst Gaddafi also blasted those who ousted him.
‘All of these germs, rats and scumbags, they are not Libyans, ask anyone. They have co-operated with Nato … Gaddafi won’t leave the land of his ancestors,’ he said.
