CAIRO - Libya is not afraid of a UN resolution authorizing military strikes to protect Libyan civilians, Al Arabiya television quoted Saif al-Islam, one of Muammar Gaddafi's sons, as saying on Friday.

Al Arabiya did not say where or when he made the remark. The Libyan Defense Ministry has warned of swift retaliation, even beyond Libyan frontiers, against any military action against the oil-exporting nation, which is fighting rebels trying to end Gaddafi's four-decade rule.
