Bishop: Gadaffi still ‘seems strong’ despite bombings

August 01, 2011

Despite a recent intensification of NATO airstrikes, Libyan leader Muammar Gadaffi still “seems strong,” according to the apostolic vicar of Tripoli.

“Last night we heard some incredibly powerful explosions … a very restless night, due to the bombing,” said Bishop Giovanni Martinelli. “Bombings are being intensified, I do not know why … I do not think the leader will surrender so easily. Gaddafi still seems to be strong and I do not think the bombs will make him give in.”
