Muammar Gaddafi, the Libyan leader, has threatened retaliation against Europe – warning of stinging attacks like “locusts and bees”.

Gaddafi said that Europe could face a “catastrophe” unless NATO ceases operations in his country.

He also urged supporters to retrieve weapons that France says it has supplied in rebel-held areas.

Al Jazeera’s Sue Turton reports from Misurata, where the rebels say they’re in desperate need of more foreign military assistance.
