Setback to Gaddafi's African dream

Unrest deals a serious blow to Libyan leader's grand vision for 'United States of Africa' under his leadership.

    Muammar Gaddafi, the Libyan president, has always promoted himself as one of Africa's great leaders touting a vision of progress and wealth for the entire continent.
