Watch – Gaddafi speaks as NATO pounds Tripoli

2011-06-09 07:29

NATO war planes have pounded the Libyan capital Tripoli in their most sustained bombardment since airstrikes began in March.

In wave after wave, the jets struck different parts of city. Libyan officials said at least 31 people were killed in over 60 strikes.

EuroNews reports that at the same time, Libyan state television showed images of Muammar Gaddafi at an unidentified location, apparently meeting tribal leaders. The message from the Libyan leader was that he will stay in Tripoli, dead or alive.
