Gaddafi spits defiance amid rumours of quitting

LIBYA: Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi spat defiance at opposition forces and NATO on Monday amid rumours he was preparing to flee the country and as rebels made advances in several towns, especially in the west.

The veteran leader predicted a swift end for "the rats" and the "coloniser", referring to the rebels and NATO, in an audio message on Libyan television, extracts of which were published by Libyan news agency JANA.

"The end of the coloniser is close and the end of the rats is close.

They (the rebels) flee from one house to another before the masses who are chasing them," Kadhafi declared in what the television said was a live broadcast.

"The coloniser and its agents can now only resort to lies and psychological warfare after all the wars with all the weapons have failed," Kadhafi said as rumours circulated on Twitter and other media about his imminent departure into exile.

Much of the message, his first in several weeks, was inaudible due to a "technical breakdown", according to the television station.

The veteran leader called on his supporters to resist and to "prepare for the battle to liberate" the towns held by the rebels, as the insurgents said they had advanced in western towns including Zawiyah, Sorman and Gharyan.
