Tripoli: Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi
on Friday accused French President Nicolas Sarkozy of being a "war
criminal" who had stained his country`s history.

"This Sarkozy is a war criminal who has stained the
history of the French nation and destroyed his country`s ties
with Libya and Muslim countries," Gaddafi said in a message to
supporters in an eastern district of Tripoli.

"He`s mentally disturbed," he charged in the
message relayed over loudspeaker.

"By leading a crusade against the Libyan people, he
has led his country into a lost war," said Gaddafi. "He is not
a Frenchman. The (French) people should ban this criminal."
