Gadhafi tells followers to defend the nation
BENGHAZI, Libya -- Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi has told a crowd of his supporters massed in a central Tripoli Square to fight back against protesters and "defend the nation."
Gadhafi, wearing a fur cap and sunglasses, is speaking from the ramparts of the Red Castle, a historic fort, overlooking Green Square, where over 1,000 of his supporters were massed Friday evening, waving pictures of him and green flags. Anti-Gadhafi protests erupted during the day Friday, met by gunfire from pro-regime militia.
Ghadafi, pumping his fist in the air, told the crowd to "retaliate against them, retaliate against them" and "prepare to defend the nation and defend the oil."
