TUNIS - Moussa Ibrahim, the fugitive spokesman for Muammar Gaddafi, telephoned a Syria-based television channel on Saturday to deny reports that he himself had been captured this week.

Ibrahim told Reuters on Monday he was regularly moving in and out of Gaddafi's hometown, Sirte, which is encircled by anti-Gaddafi forces.

Media reports after that said Ibrahim, disguised as a woman, had been captured by forces loyal to the ruling National Transitional Council while in the NTC-held city of Misrata.

"This information is a lie and does not reflect reality because I was near the front of Sirte with 23 fighters," Ibrahim told Arrai TV.
