A defiant Moammar Gaddafi has threatened to carry out attacks in Europe unless NATO halts its campaign of airstrikes against his regime in Libya.

Gaddafi delivered the warning Friday in an audio message played to thousands of supporters gathered in the main square of the capital Tripoli.

Gaddafi says that unless strikes stop, "we can decide to treat you in a similar way." He says that "if we decide, we can also move it (the fight) to Europe."

Friday's was one of the largest pro-government rallies in recent weeks. It came days after the International Criminal Court issued arrest warrants for Gaddafi and two others for crushing an uprising that turned into a civil war. NATO has been bombing government targets since March.
