TRIPOLI - Libyan state television showed footage of Muammar Gaddafi meeting and talking with what it said were tribal leaders in a Tripoli hotel and a presenter said the meeting took place on Wednesday.

Gaddafi has not appeared in public since April 30, when a NATO air strike on a house in the capital killed his youngest son and three of his grandchildren.

Gaddafi was wearing his brown burnous and sunglasses. An old man told him: "You will be victorious."

There was no date stamp on the footage, and no independent confirmation that the meeting took place on Wednesday.
