Gaddafi says will stay in Tripoli "until the end"

TUNIS (Reuters) - Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi said Sunday he will stay in Tripoli "until the end" and called on his supporters around the country to help liberate the capital from a rebel offensive.

He said in an audio message played over state television he was "afraid that Tripoli will burn" and he said he would provide weapons to supporters to fight off the rebels.
