Gaddafi condemns attack on his forces

Libyan leader says air raids by an international coalition amounts to a "cold war" on Islam.

    The UN Security Council has imposed a no-fly zone on Libya and forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi have been hit in air raids.

    But the Libyan leader remains defiant and has called the attacks carried out by French, US and British forces a "cold war" on Islam. He says his regime has "opened the depots" and distributed weapons among the populace.
