CAIRO - Muammar Gaddafi's son, Saif al-Islam, promised on Wednesday continued resistance to Libyan forces which ousted his father from Tripoli, and urged Libyans to wage a war of attrition against the National Transitional Council and its NATO backers.

In a statement broadcast on the Syrian-owned al-Rai satellite TV channel, Saif al-Islam Gaddafi said he was speaking from a suburb of the Libyan capital and vowed to "liberate the Green Square" in Tripoli from the NTC forces.

"We assure people we are here, ready and in good shape. Resistance is continuing and victory is near," he said, adding that 20,000 armed youths were ready for the NTC forces surrounding his father's hometown of Sirte.
