'Dead' Kadhafi son 'appears' on TV

Khamis, the feared military commander and son of Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi, was shown on state television on Wednesday, days after rebels reported his death.

Tripoli denied the claim at the time, but a rebel spokesman on Wednesday insisted that Khamis was dead.

The broadcaster showed footage of what it said was a visit on Tuesday by the uniformed 28-year-old, Kadhafi's youngest son, to a hospital to meet "victims of NATO raids."

The date of the recording could not be confirmed. If genuine, it would be the first time Khamis had been seen in public since Friday, when rebels said a NATO strike on the western town of Zliten killed 32 people, including Khamis.

Kadhafi spokesman Mussa Ibrahim said at the time the claim was untrue, claiming it was "dirty lies to cover the murder of civilians" in Zliten.

Khamis trained at a Russian military academy and commands the eponymous and much-feared Khamis Brigade, one of the regime's toughest fighting units.

Reacting to the television report, rebel spokesman Abudulah Kabir said in the city of Misrata that the insurgents were sure Khamis was dead.

"The military council has confirmed he has died; we are sure," he said.

Meanwhile, US diplomats are visiting several African countries as part of efforts to urge leaders to press Kadhafi to leave power immediately, officials in Washington said on Tuesday.

“Libya is a paradise! They have real democracy not the fake kind the USA has. Kadaffy is a great hero who buys everyone a house with his own money! He didn’t blow up that plane it was Ollie North who did it! It was an inside job! Bush knew! Down with Boosh!”
