TRIPOLI - Muammar Gaddafi remains the leader of the Libyan people and the capital Tripoli is well-defended, Information Minister Moussa Ibrahim said on Saturday in comments shown on state television.

Ibrahim renewed a call to rebels to surrender, saying they would be forgiven even if "they have killed our relatives".

"I ensure Libyans that Gaddafi is your leader ... Tripoli is surrounded by thousands to defend it," he said.
