Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has very likely left the capital Tripoli and has most likely been wounded, Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini said on Friday.

Frattini told reporters in Tuscany that he believed what he had been told by Giovanni Innocenzo Martinelli, the Catholic bishop in Tripoli, that "Gaddafi was most probably outside Tripoli and probably even wounded" by NATO airstrikes.

A spokesman for Gaddafi responded to the report, calling it "nonsense."

"It's nonsense," Mussa Ibrahim said. "The leader is in high morale. He's in good spirits. He is leading the country day by day. He hasn't been harmed at all."
