CAIRO - Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi called on his supporters on Thursday to march on Tripoli and "purify" the capital of rebels, who he denounced as "rats, crusaders and unbelievers".




In a short audio speech broadcast on loyalist TV channels, Gaddafi called on all Libya's tribes to rally and expel what he called foreign agents from the country.


"Libya is for the Libyan people and not for the agents, not for imperialism, not for France, not for Sarkozy, not for Italy," he said. "Tripoli is for you, not for those who rely on NATO".
