Libya's Gaddafi vows to fight to the death

RABAT (Reuters) - Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi vowed on Tuesday in an audio speech broadcast live on state television to fight to the end after NATO intensified air strikes on Tripoli.

"We only have one choice: we will stay in our land dead or alive," he said in a fiery speech calling on his supporters to flock to his Bab al-Aziziya compound which was hit several times by NATO air strikes on Tuesday.
