Defeated Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has vowed "martyrdom or victory" in an audio message broadcast on a local Tripoli radio station on Wednesday. The hiding leader, whose whereabouts are unknown, said he would fight to the last drop of blood against the "aggression." He also vowed t return to Tripoli.
This came after rebels stormed his compound in Tripoli.
Pro-Gaddafi al-Urubah TV said Gaddafi, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity, said his forces made a "tactical" retreat from the Bab al-Aziziya complex.
Gaddafi said NATO conducted 64 strikes against his complex.
Meanwhile, government spokesman Musa Ibrahim promised Libya would turn into a "burning volcano and a fire under the feet of the invaders," in an interview with Al-Urubah. According to him, 6,000 volunteers had entered Libya to join Gaddafi forces, which continued to attack rebel-held towns with rockets on Wednesday.
