Libya: Gaddafi Has “Suicidal Plan” – Report


Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has a “suicidal plan” to destroy the capital Tripoli if it is attacked by rebels, the Kremlin’s special envoy to Libya told a Russian newspaper Thursday.


“The Libyan premier told me: if the rebels seize the city, we will cover it with missiles and blow it up,” Mikhail Margelov said in an interview with the Izvestia daily. Margelov met Libyan Prime Minister Baghdadi al-Mahmudi last month.

“I imagine that the Gaddafi regime does have such a suicidal plan,” he added, saying that Gaddafi still had plentiful supplies of missiles and ammunition. Gaddafi had still not used a single surface-to-surface missile, he argued.

“Tripoli theoretically could lack ammunition for tanks, cartridges for rifles. But the colonel has got plenty of missiles and explosives.”
