Exclusive wire taps on Gaddafi's inner circle

Al Jazeera publishes recorded mobile-phone conversations between former Libya leader and some of his most trusted aides.

    Al Jazeera has obtained secret recordings of Muammar Gaddafi made during the Libyan revolution.

    The recordings are mobile phone wire taps of two members of Gaddafi's inner circle, Al-Baghdadi al-Mahmoudi, his prime minister and Tayeb el Safi, one of his most trusted aides.

    The audio files contain 12,000 intercepted conversations with Gaddafi himself, his sons, and members of the international community.

    The phone calls took place between February and June of last year, the same time that Libya's opposition rose up against the Gaddafi regime.

    Al Jazeera's Hoda Abdel-Hamid has this exclusive report.
