Ghaddafi reappears in public


Libyan leader Muammar Ghaddafi has been seen in public for the first time since May 11, when he was filmed reportedly meeting tribal leaders.

Liban state televison broadcast pictures of him meeting South African President Jacob Zuma, who is on his second visit to the country in an attempt to broker a peace deal.

No information was given as to the whereabouts of the meeting.

Ghaddafi has reportedly been moving around, often staying overnight in hospitals, since NATO airstrikes began regularly targetting his compound in the capital, Tripoli, and there were rumours that he had been injured.

Zuma’s first mission in April ended in failure when Ghaddafi refused to step down, the opposition’s condition for calling a ceasefire. Ghaddafi is trying to supress a popular uprising that began in mid-February, but which is struggling to gain ground.
