Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has addressed the people of Az-Zawiyah, a town west of the capital, where fierce fighting had erupted between his forces and rebels, accusing them of being linked to Osama bin Laden.
In what was said to be a live audio feed on state television on Thursday, Gaddafi also accused the protesters of being on drugs.
“You in Zawiyah turn to Bin Laden,” he said. “They give you drugs.”
