Libya's Muammar Gaddafi called on his supporters to set Libya alight, vowed that his backers would not give up and said those against him were divided, Arabic news channels reported on Thursday.
"Let there be a long fight and let Libya be engulfed in flames," Gaddafi was quoted as saying in a message.
Brief headlines outlining the message were first carried by Al Arabiya television. It said it was citing a message to be broadcast by the Syrian-owned Arrai channel, which later issued similar headlines. Arrai said a voice message would follow.
"We will not give up. We are not women. We will continue fighting," Gaddafi was quoted as saying in a headline carried by Arrai channel.
