Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi expressed regret Friday over the divorce of French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife Cecilia, both of whom he described as friends, and said he wished he'd had a chance to try to patch things up between them. Cecilia Sarkozy visited to Libya in July and negotiated directly with Gaddafi in a successful mission to free five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor jailed there on charges of infecting Libyan children with HIV virus. Soon after, her husband went to Libya and met with Gadhafi. "I deeply regret this sudden separation of my two friends," Gadhafi said in a statement. "The speed with which the separation was made did not give their friends a chance to mend fences."
