Gaddafi's daughter's defiant message

world Updated: Apr 16, 2011 02:32 IST

From her father’s compound, struck by US bombs exactly 25 years ago, Muammar Gaddafi’s daughter sent a defiant message on Friday: Libya was not defeated by airstrikes then and won’t be defeated now, she told a cheering crowd.

The daughter, Aisha, pumped her fist as she led the audience in chants from the second-floor balcony of the badly damaged Bab Aziziyah compound, targeted by US warplanes in 1986.

“Leave our skies with your bombs,” she said, referring to Nato airstrikes that had struck Tripoli just hours earlier.
