TRIPOLI - Muammar Gaddafi's son Saadi warned on Friday of an "imminent uprising" in Libya, saying he was in regular contact with people in the country who were unhappy with the authorities put in place after the ousting and killing of his father.
Speaking to Al-Arabiya television by phone, he said he also wanted to return to Libya after escaping across the border to Niger when National Transitional Council (NTC) forces captured the capital Tripoli in August.
"First of all it is not going to be an uprising limited to some areas. It will cover all the regions of the Jamahiriya and this uprising does exist and I am following and witnessing this as it grows bigger by the day," he said, referring to Libya.
"There will be a great uprising in the south, in the east, in the center and in the west. All the regions of Libya will witness this new popular uprising."
