Tunisia is experiencing bloodshed and disorder because its people were in too much of a hurry to get rid of President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali, Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi said on Saturday according to Reuters.

Ben Ali, who served as president for 23 years, was forced to resign after weeks of rioting in the country.

 "I am very pained by what is happening in Tunisia," Qaddafi said in a speech reported quoted by Reuters.

"Tunisia now lives in fear ... Families could be raided and slaughtered in their bedrooms and the citizens in the street killed as if it was the Bolshevik or the American revolution," the Libyan leader said.
