ROME (AP) — Moammar Gadhafi may have fled Tripoli and at least one Catholic official in Tripoli reports that the Libyan strongman has been hurt, the Italian foreign minister said Friday.
Franco Frattini said that Tripoli's bishop has said Gadhafi is "probably wounded." Frattini stressed that Italy has "no hard information on the current fate of Gadhafi."
Still, "I tend to take as credible the words of the Tripoli Archbishop (Giovanni) Martinelli who tells us that Gadhafi is very probably outside of Tripoli and probably also wounded," the ANSA news agency quoted Frattini as telling reporters on the sidelines of a conference.
Frattini said "international pressure has likely provoked the decision by Gadhafi to seek refuge in a safe place." That comment came during a TV interview with Corriere della Sera that was posted on the newspaper's website.

I neither hate him or am in favor of him.
What changed your mind?

The thing that changed my mind was how fast the west moved to attack and how the "rebels" seemed to be pretty well armed from the start. Also the fact that the events in Yemen and Bahrain pretty much go ignored. I'm sure he's not the greatest, but the country seemed to be pretty well off and independent of the bankers before all this started.edit on 13-5-2011 by mayabong because: (no reason given)
