Gaddafi spokesman refutes captivity reports
Moussa Ibrahim, spokesman for the fugitive Libyan leader Moamer Gaddafi, late Saturday denied reports that he had been captured by rebels, dpa reported.
On Thursday, a pro-rebel television station reported that Ibrahim had been captured, disguised as a woman.
"I was near the Sirte front with 23 fighters when we came under an attack that lasted a day and half from the gangs of NATO," Ibrahim said Saturday in a phone call to Damascus-based Al Rai television.
"But we left the place safely and moved to another front," he added.
Sirte, Gaddafi's hometown, has been the scene of fierce fighting for more than two weeks between Gaddafi loyalists and the rebel forces.
