Libya's Gaddafi blames bin Laden for turmoil

TRIPOLI: Libya's Muammar Gaddafi on Thursday blamed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden for manipulating Libyans who have risen up against the veteran leader and taken control of large parts of the oil-producing country.
"Bin Laden ... this is the enemy who is manipulating people," Gaddafi said, speaking by telephone to Libyan television. "Do not be swayed by bin Laden."
Referring to violent clashes taking place in the town of Zawiyah, about 50 km (30 miles) from the capital Tripoli, Gaddafi said, "What is happening in Zawiyah is a farce. ... Sane men don't enter such a farce." He called on citizens to "leave the country calm."
