Libyan TV host waves gun, swears martyrdom

Monday 22 Aug 2011 5:27 a.m.

As the Libyan government repeats its calls for a ceasefire, a presenter on Libya's state-run television has appeared brandishing a gun to show her support for Gadhafi.

She declared the channel's staff ready to become martyrs in defending the station from a rebel attack.

"With this weapon, I either kill or die today, you will not take al-Libiyah channel," she tells viewers.

"You won't take Jamahiriyah channel, Shababiyah channel, Tripoli and all of Libya.

"We are all armed here and even those without a weapon are willing to be a shield in order to protect their colleagues at this channel. We are willing to become martyrs."
