Colonel Gaddafi last night vowed his fight against the Libyan rebels would end in death or victory, it was reported.
In a desperate attempt to dent the rebels’ morale after they had ransacked his compound earlier in the day, he also claimed the withdrawal from his Bab al-Aziziya fortress was a tactical move.
The brief statement was issued by his spokesman to pro-Gaddafi television channel Al-Orouba.
