    Libya protests: Gaddafi's son Saif admits army 'mistakes'

    But, speaking on Libyan TV, Sayf al-Islam accused the opposition of trying to break up the country. He said troops had opened fire on protesters because they were not trained to handle civil unrest. He said "some" people had been killed but accused foreign media of exaggerating the violence.

    Libya protests: Gaddafi's son admits 'mistakes'

    [​IMG]

    Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's son, Sayf al-Islam, has admitted the country's military over-reacted when dealing with protesters.

    But, speaking on Libyan TV, he accused the opposition and Islamist groups of trying to break up the country.

    He said troops had opened fire on protesters because they were not trained to handle civil unrest.
    His address was broadcast as the first anti-government rallies broke out in the Libyan capital Tripoli.

    The sound of gunfire could be heard across the city. Witnesses said tear gas and live ammunition were used by the security forces.

    Reports from the eastern city of Benghazi say more than 200 people have died there in recent days after the Libyan military used heavy weapons against protesters.

    Sayf al-Islam said "some" people had been killed but accused foreign media of exaggerating the violence, and said reports of high death tolls were "imaginary".

    He accused "opposition elements" living abroad of trying to initiate an Egypt-style Facebook revolution in Libya.

    "They have started a campaign to bring Libya to a point reached by Egypt and Tunisia," he said.
    "Security forces have pre-empted this and arrested some of the people involved.

    A few people have died and violence against the police has escalated... This is what happened in Benghazi."

    He warned of the threat of civil war, saying "everyone" in the country was armed and, if war started, Libyans would be "mourning hundreds and thousands of casualties".

    He said that "drunkards and thugs" were driving tanks about the streets, and rioters were fuelled by drugs.

    HOJA YANGU:

    Ni majeshi mangapi na vikosi vya polisi barani Afrika ambavyo navyo pia havijafundishwa namna ya kusimamia maandamano ya nguvu ya umma isipokua ni kuwaua tu??????????


    Je, huyu dogo Rizi1 wa Libya anaongelea serikali hewani kwa cheo gani hasa? Hata hivyo uzoefu unaonyesha kwamba tangu upepo wa mabadiliko uanze kote barani kwetu, kokote kule walikouaua raia na majeshi marais wao wameng'ooka mwisho wa siku.


    Hivyo, mng'ooko wa Dikteta Gadaffi sasa hivi yaashiria kuwa karibu leo kuliko hata hapo jana!!! Nguvu ya Umma hiyo!!! Ushindi u karibu na mabadiliko ya kweli yako njiani Libya hivi leo!!!

    Kinachoendelea Libya, Bahrain, and Iran kina direct impact na maisha ya Mtanzania popote pale alipo. Mpaka sasa tunajua investments kubwa za dunia zipo kwenye mafuta na hapa Tanzania sasa hivi "inflation" inachangiwa sana na price of oil. Kwa Wantanzania lets get ready for worse economic times. Tunavyo fahamu matatizo ya umeme Tanzania yanasababishwa na kutokuwa na mafuta kwa sababu dams zetu za kuzalisha umeme kwa maji zilisha fail long time na we are currently 95% depend on energy from generators. Sasa serikali ya Tanzania itaweza kununua mafuta na ku-subsides for Tanzanians? Wananchi wanauwezo wa kununua mafuta? Hali iliopo Tanzania kiuchumi ni mbaya na imesababishwa na kutojiandaa kwa muda mrefu kuongoza Tanzania kutoka kwenye highly fuel dependence and this time it will cost us. Well wasiolijua hili na wanachama wa ccm endeleeni kumpigia makofi Kikwete na Pinda.

    How? In what specific and detailed ways does Tanzania compare to other African countries as far as being (according to you) the one country "most governed stupidly after Libya in Africa"?

    I will tell you the details as time goes; but first look at this: Tanzania is the only country to be blessed with plenty of natural resources but yet suffering at the bottom on the list of least developed countries in the world.

    Libya on the brink, protesters advancing


    Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's son is warning that the country is facing a bloody civil war if advancing protesters refuse to accept reform offers, in a speech broadcast as gunfire rang out in the capital.
    Saif al-Islam Gaddafi in the early hours of Monday morning condemned the unprecedented uprising against his father's 41-year rule as a foreign plot, but admitted mistakes were made in a brutal crackdown and urged citizens to build a "new Libya".
    "Libya is at a crossroads. If we do not agree today on reforms, we will not be mourning 84 people, but thousands of deaths, and rivers of blood will run through Libya," he said.
    But the threats betrayed a note of desperation, and he suggested that the eastern city of Benghazi, Libya's second city, was now out of government control.
    "At this moment there are tanks being driven by civilians in Benghazi," he said, insisting the uprising was aimed at installing Islamist rule and that it would be ruthlessly crushed.
    Soon after the address, just before sunrise on Monday, reports were filtering through that a crack army unit in Benghazi had defected to the opposition and clashes were spreading to the capital, Tripoli.
    Saif Gaddafi appealed for calm, promising to institute democratic reforms.
    But in a warning suggesting that the regime was digging in for a bloody fight for survival in the seat of power, Tripoli, he said that unless its proposals are accepted, "be prepared for civil war."
    Gaddafi's son gave a lower toll than the United States and rights watchdogs who said that hundreds are feared dead in an offensive to crush the uprising carried out by the military, reportedly backed by mercenaries.
    Heavy gunfire broke out in central Tripoli and several city areas on Monday for the first time since the anti-regime uprising began, witnesses and an AFP journalist reported.
    A witness in the working-class Gurgi area said security forces fired tear gas to disperse protesters.
    But confusion prevailed in the city after Gaddafi's speech and unconfirmed rumours that his father had left Libya triggered sounds of celebration, with women ululating and drivers hooting their car horns.
    According to Human Rights Watch, at least 173 people have died in Libya since the anti-regime protests broke out on February 15 after similar uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt which ended the long rule of two veteran leaders.
    The unrest has spread from the flashpoint city of Benghazi, where demonstrations began on Tuesday, to the Mediterranean town of Misrata, just 200 kilometres from Tripoli.
    "This is an opposition movement, a separatist movement which threatens the unity of Libya," Gaddafi said in his fiery speech which blamed Arab and African elements for fomenting the troubles.
    "We will take up arms... we will fight to the last bullet," he said. "We will destroy seditious elements. If everybody is armed, it is civil war, we will kill each other."
    "Libya is not Egypt, it is not Tunisia," he said, adding that attempts at another "Facebook revolution" would be resisted.
    And despite the tough talk and finger-wagging, Gaddafi also made some concessions - pledging a new constitution and new liberal laws with more media freedom.
    "If you want us to change the flag and national anthem, we will."
    He also admitted "mistakes" on the part of the army in containing the riots, saying they were "not trained to contain riots" and were responding to attacks by "people on drugs."
    In a performance which veered between threats and concessions, Gaddafi underscored Libya's vast oil wealth and issued a trenchant warning to foreign companies.
    "We have one resource that we live on and that is petrol," he said. "All the foreign companies will be forced to leave the country."
    Prime Minister Baghdadi Mahmudi meanwhile told EU ambassadors in Tripoli that there are "very precise plans, destructive and terrorist, that want Libya to become a base for terrorism."
    But in a significant crack in the regime's public face, Libya's envoy to the 22-member Arab League announced he was "joining the revolution."
    "I have submitted my resignation in protest against the acts of repression and violence against demonstrators and I am joining the ranks of the revolution," Abdel Moneim al-Honi said.
    In Benghazi, which has borne the brunt of the violence, protests continued, lawyer Mohammed al-Mughrabi told AFP by telephone.
    "Lawyers are demonstrating outside the Northern Benghazi court; there are thousands here. We have called it Tahrir Square Two," he said of the Cairo square central to protests that brought down Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak.
    Witnesses told AFP by telephone that security forces also clashed with anti-regime protesters in Misrata, saying security forces, backed by "African mercenaries," fired on crowds "without discrimination."
    The United States and the European Union strongly condemned the use of lethal force in Libya.
    "We are working to ascertain the facts, but we have received multiple credible reports that hundreds of people have been killed and injured in several days of unrest - and the full extent of the death toll is unknown due to the lack of access of international media and human rights organisations," US State Department spokesman Philip Crowley said.
    EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton urged Tripoli to open a dialogue with protesters.
    "The legitimate aspirations and demands of the people for reform must be addressed through open and meaningful Libyan-led dialogue," Ashton said in a declaration on behalf of the 27-nation bloc.

    Kuombea wenzako waendelee kuwa chini ya udikteta ili wewe uendelee kuwa na mafuta rahisi ni itikadi za kibeberu na kikatili za kimarekani marekani.

    Gadhafi's son warns of civil war in Libya

    TRIPOLI - Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's son Seif al-Islam said in a televised address early Monday that Libya was in danger of civil wars if the clashes escalate, according to Doha-based Al-Jazeera.
    He said that Libyans and the army are with Gaddafi, and the army will play a huge role in future. "We will not give up any inch of the Libyan territory."
    "We will have to lay down a constitution for the country," he said, pledging to make reforms in future.
    He hinted that his father was still in Libya, saying that Gaddafi "was not a leader as (Zine El Abidine) Ben Ali or (Hosni) Mubarak." He also accused foreign media of manipulating information.
    Dubai-based Al-Alabiya and Al-Jazeera reported earlier that Gaddafi has left for Brazil or Venezuela, and his son Seif al- Islam took over as the head of the country. But this was not confirmed by any Libyan official sources.
    Al-Alabiya also reported that some of the troops in the eastern city of Benghazi have defected and have liberated the city.
    Gaddafi's son said if the situation goes out of control, every Libyan has to carry arms to defend himself, because the country will have bloodshed. "Violence worse than Iraq" is possible if revolt continues.
    Seif al-Islam said that it was a plot against Libya, as foreign elements were present in the country.
    He said that some Islamic groups were behind the protests and turmoil, attempting to establish an "Islamic Emirate."
    He said that Libya is different from Tunisia or Egypt. Any separation will make the country fall back to the situation 60 or 70 years ago. The clashes may cause civil wars in Libya.
    Seif al-Islam said 84 protestors were killed in Benghazi, denying early reports of 250 deaths of protestors.
    He said that protestors attacked the road-blocks in Benghazi because they were angry. Dozens of protestors were arrested, including some campaigners. Some tanks and heavy equipments were controlled by protestors.
    He said that the army and the police did not prepare to battle people.
    "What's happening in Libya is very dangerous," he said. "How will Libya feed its people if the country falls apart?"
    Seif al-Islam said the country is composed of tribes and clans, and oil is the only source that keep the Libyans united.
    He also denied the use of mercenaries, saying the reports about this were not true. Protestors began to go on streets in Libya on Wednesday, calling for an end to Muammar Gaddafi's 42-year old rule, in an apparent attempt to emulate recent protests in neighboring Tunisia and Egypt, which forced the leaders of both countries to quit.
    Libyan envoy to the Arab League resigned on Sunday and joined the protests in his country, Egypt's state-run MENA agency reported.
    A total of 100 protesters have been killed in the Libyan city of Benghazi by the security forces on anti-government protests, the pan-Arab Al Arabiya TV reported on Sunday

    Ahmad Jibreel, Libyan diplomat, tells Al Jazeera:
    The minister of security has, by the way, joined too … He is currently in Benghazi - actually he is with the people, he is one of the people starting to fight the mercenaries and Gaddafi's guards
