TUNIS (Reuters) – Libyan state television broadcast on Sunday what it said was live footage of Muammar Gaddafi in a car in his Tripoli compound where hundreds of supporters waved green flags and chanted slogans.
Gaddafi could not be seen in the white car but the television said the Libyan leader was in it.
The short footage showed bodyguards pushing away supporters to prevent them from getting too close to the car.
Gaddafi has not been shown on television since he made a speech on Tuesday.
Libya’s ramshackle rebel army pushed west on Sunday to retake a series of towns from pro-Gaddafi forces as they pulled back under pressure from Western air strikes.
