Saadi Gaddafi, one of the sons of the late Libyan leader Moamar Gaddafi, speaking on television from Niger, where he fled after his father was toppled, has threatened to lead an uprising against the ruling National Transitional Council, BBC said.
Saadi said “first of all, it’s not going to be an uprising limited to some areas. It will cover all the regions in Jamahiriya and this uprising does exist and I am following and witnessing this as it grows bigger day by day.”
He said he still has many followers in Libya, including within the transitional council and was in regular contact with the army, the militias, some officials of the transitional council and members of the Gaddafi family.
Libyan authorities told BBC in Tripoli that although the possibility of Gaddafi's son leading an urpising was remote they were worried about possible action by his loyalists.
