Gaddafi on Libyan TV pledges to defeat NATO

BERLIN (Reuters) - Libyan TV aired an audio speech from leader Muammar Gaddafi on Friday in which he vowed to defeat the NATO alliance trying to dislodge him from Tripoli.

"This is the first time they are facing an armed nation of a millions," he said. "They will be defeated, the alliance will be defeated."

The TV station said the speech was from "a telephone call from the brother leader on June 17."
