Gadhafi Says He's Still In Libya And Not Leaving

Despite the pressure put on him from internation powers and rebel forces, Moammar Gadhafi makes it clear that he haven't left Libya and he urges his followers to rise up against those who oppose him.

"Gadhafi, not seen in public in months, has been on the run since forces loyal to the National Transitional Council captured Tripoli more than two weeks ago and now control an estimated 80 percent of the country.

In the audio message, aired on a Syrian station Thursday, Gadhafi downplayed reports that a convoy, thought to carry some of his loyalists and possibly gold and cash, had gone to Niger earlier in the week.

Forces supporting Gadhafi still control three main towns - Sirte, Bani Walid and Sabha. The NTC says its forces surround all three, and has given leaders until Saturday to surrender. Negotiations have been going on for days, but have hit numerous snags."
