Gaddafi daughter asks Libyans to revolt

Moscow, Nov 30 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Aisha Gaddafi, daughter of slain Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, has urged Libyan people to overthrow the new government which came to power “with the planes of NATO”.

“My father has not left, he is always among us,” CBS News quoted Aisha Gaddafi as saying in an audio message broadcast on Syria’s al-Rai television Tuesday.

“Do not forget the orders of your father urging you to continue fighting, even if you no longer hear his voice,” Aisha said.

Gaddafi, who had ruled the country for almost 42 years, was captured and executed by rebels near his home town of Sirte Oct 20.

Aisha, her mother Sofia, and brothers Hannibal and Mohammed, accompanied by their children, crossed the border into Algeria Aug 29 after the fall of Tripoli. Aisha delivered a child in an Algerian clinic hours after crossing the border.

CBS News said Aisha could face extradition for her statements, as she and her family members had vowed not to make any public appeal after receiving refugee status in Algeria.

Libya’s ruling National Transitional Council has repeatedly demanded that members of Gaddafi’s family be extradited to Libya to stand trial.
