CAIRO - A television station broadcast footage on Tuesday of what it said was Muammar Gaddafi's son Saif al-Islam dated Sept. 20, apparently rallying his forces in one of the last strongholds of the Libyan leader, now surrounded by rebels.

"This land is the land of your forefathers. Don't hand it over," Saif al-Islam, shouted to a crowd of followers, according to the footage broadcast by Arrai TV.

Saif al-Islam has not been since in public since Libyan capital Tripoli was overrun by rebels in August.

Brandishing an automatic rifle and wearing a military uniform, he said: "Brothers, you need to enter Tripoli today by force." It was not immediately possible to verify the footage.
