Gaddafi's female fighters

Libyan leader alleged to be sending women into battle, some of them believed to be from prisons.

    Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has made no secret of his preference for women in his personal security detail.

    And now he is being accused of sending women to the frontline, including women released from prisons.

    Some claim that snipers deployed by government forces in Misurata were also women, brought in from Colombia.
