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.


Not sure what to make of this yet but I will be following it.

"probably wounded"...

He either is, or he isn't. Sounds like guesswork to me.

I went from hating Gadaffi to pulling for him. Hopefully he beats the machine, but I doubt it. lol

I neither hate him or am in favor of him.

What changed your mind?

That guy really needs to hit the gym. That sweaty double chin must go!

All jokes aside, sweet find. I'd like to point out that it's very interesting this information is coming out of Rome. Those kooky Catholics have better intelligence than all countries combined

I'm interested to here this to as I am unsure what to think or feel about the whole thing. However I do know that the whole "turn it over to NATO" thing is a crock.

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.

I HATE to agree with you on this one but....
Yep, I would love to see him beat the odds and Unite Africa.
They could do so much if all of them were pulling all in the same direction.

Gadhafi made a good choice, rather then been another saddam.

As for the western mainstream news i no longer watch it,after the stunt they pulled in libya.
but that wasn't there first time, i often ask this how can these reporters sleep at night? even if they are reporters at all.

I agree with you on this. Also reports that we were supporting Al-Queda, which I'm sure we are. It's funny that whilst supporting some of these terrorists, we were killing their leader??

Nevermind, we'll soon see a Costa Coffee spring up in every street in Libya.
