    • Claims sixth son Khamis, leader of crack loyalist unit, died of burn wounds

    [​IMG] Khamis Gaddafi: Libyan officials have denied that the 27-year-old has been killed by a kamikaze Libyan pilot at a barracks

    Colonel Gaddafi suffered a massive personal setback today when one of his sons was allegedly killed in a suicide air mission on his barracks.
    Khamis, 27, who runs the feared Khamis Brigade that has been prominent in its role of attacking rebel-held areas, is said to have died on Saturday night.
    A Libyan air force pilot crashed his jet into the Bab al-Aziziya compound in Tripoli in a kamikaze attack, Algerian TV reported following an unsubstantiated claim by an anti-Gaddafi media organisation.

    Khamis is alleged to have died of burns in hospital. The regime denied the reports.
    It was claimed he died in the same compound hit by RAF cruise missiles hit by coalition forces last night.
    Loyalists have been photographed with shrapnel from the missile that struck the building and throughout the day there has been no information on Gaddafi's whereabouts.

    Libyan state TV has claimed that 48 people were killed in the weekend attacks, causing friction between the west and the Arab world but the Ministry of Defence said it wasn't aware of civilian casualties.
    But it exposed fractures between the U.S. and British positions, with U.S. Defence Secretary Robert Gates saying getting rid of Gaddafi would be unwise while the UK refuses to rule out any course of action.

    As David Cameron took to the floor of the House of Commons today to justify the actions, Downing Street emphasised its legal position this afternoon saying there was "a clear and unequivocal legal basis for deployment of UK forces and military assets to achieve the resolution's objectives".
    The Chief of the Defence Staff's Strategic Communications Officer Major General John Lorimer said: 'We are satisfied that our attacks and those of our partners have been highly effective in degrading the Libyan air defence and command and control capability.'
    Meanwhile, Gaddafi has ordered his troops to round up civilians from nearby towns to be used as human shields towns to avoid targets being hit by allied forces, it was claimed today.
    A rebel spokesman in Misrata, the only big rebel stronghold in western Libya, said that residents were being bussed there from nearby towns, but those reports could not be independently verified.

    [​IMG] A group of protesters angry about international intervention in Libya blocked the path of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon as he left a meeting at the Arab League.

    Ban had finished a meeting with the Arab League chief and was leaving the organization's headquarters in Cairo when dozens of protesters converged on him and his security detail.

    The protesters, carrying pictures of the Libyan leader and banners critical of the U.S. and UN, blocked his path as he walked away from the building. Ban returned inside and apparently drove out of the league from another exit.

    Snipers were posted on rooftops, shooting anyone that came within range while armed pro-Gaddafi forces had entered the city dressed in civilian cloths to try and mix in.
    The spokesman known only as Hassan said: 'The Gaddafi forces are forcing people from Zawiyat al Mahjoub and Al Ghiran out of their houses and giving them Gaddafi's pictures and the (official Libyan) green flag to chant for Gaddafi.

    'They are bringing them to Misrata so they can enter the city and control it by using the civilians as human shields because they know we are not going to shoot woman and children and old people.'
    The accounts show a change in tactics from Gaddafi's forces in a bid to avoid Western airstrikes.
    Libyan state TV said that 'supporters' were converging on airports to act as human shields.
    Earlier this morning Foreign Secretary William Hague appearing on BBC Radio 4's Today programme refused to say if Gaddafi would or could be assassinated, insisting he would not "get drawn into details about what or whom may be targeted."
    'I'm not going to speculate on the targets,' he said. 'That depends on the circumstances at the time.'
    Defence Secretary Liam Fox said yesterday he would sanction a ‘bunker buster’ attack on the Libyan leader’s lair as long as casualties could be avoided.
    He vowed to destroy the Libyan dictator's entire military infrastructure and senior officials privately admitted they want to engineer regime change.
    The chief of defence staff, Sir David Richards, said Gaddafi was "absolutely not" a target. 'It's not allowed under the UN resolution,' he said.
    Mr Fox's U.S. counterpart, Robert Gates, said it was "unwise" for foreign forces to try to kill Colonel Gaddafi. He said the allied operation should be carried out based on the norms of the UN Security Council.

    MADRID (AFP) - Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad warned Western powers Tuesday against imposing a no-fly zone or taking other military action in Libya.

    Ahmadinejad renewed his condemnation of Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi's bombardment of opponents in his own country, in an interview with Spanish television in Tehran.

    But he also told Europe and the United States to learn the lessons of the Iraq and Afghan wars, saying any armed intervention in Libya would make things worse.

    "I think that military intervention would make things even worse. We have the experience of Iraq and Afghanistan. It made things worse, not better," Ahmadinejad told the public television station TVE.

    Asked whether Tehran would support a no-fly zone, he said: "Any Western military intervention is going to make the situation more complicated. The Westerners have to cast aside their colonialist ambitions."

    The United Nations Security Council is discussing plans being pushed by France and Britain to impose a no-fly zone to prevent Libyan warplanes from bombing and firing on rebels.

    Ahmadinejad condemned Kadhafi's actions.

    "That action is not acceptable," he said. "Whoever bombards his own people should be condemned."

    But he urged the forces of the United States and Europe to stay out of the region.

    "I hope the European and US governments do not intervene in the affairs of this region and let the people of this region decide their future," the Iranian leader said.

    "If they do not intervene in the affairs of this region I think the people of this region, for example the Libyan people, can decide their future," he said.

    Ahmadinejad denied Tehran had repressed its own protesters.

    "Never, never. We have never done that. In the past 30 years we have had 30 free elections. Every week I am in the streets for four hours speaking with the people," he said.

    When the interviewer questioned him about the fate of Iranian opposition leaders Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi, he asked whether she was their lawyer.

    "In every country there are opponents, there is opposition. And there is also the law. If there is an opposition, can they infringe the law?" the Iranian president asked.

    Ahmadinejad drew a parallel between Iranian protesters and the armed Basque separatist group ETA, which is held responsible for more than 800 killings in more than four decades of violence.

    "Do you allow those separatist forces to burn public buildings and hit people in the street? To burn people's homes? If someone commits these atrocities in Spain, what would the judge do? Would the judge just look on at what they are doing?

    "They burned buildings in the street," he charged. "What are the police going to do with this person? And what is the judge going to do about this? Does not the law rule in Spain?"

    Ahmadinejad accused the West of propping up the world's dictatorships.

    "My question is clear: who sold the 60 billion (dollars) in arms to the countries of this region?," he asked.

    "In all the world, who in the past 50 years has supported the dictatorships? Show me one single dictator who is not supported by the United States and Europe," he added.

    "Let's say if for example we resolve the problem of Libya today, tomorrow there will be a thousand more problems. Because this is the consequence of the intervention of Europe and the United States."
