Libyan intelligence chief denies defection rumors

Libya`s chief of intelligence is knocking down rumors that he is among the government insiders who have abandoned their embattled leader.



Tripoli: Libya`s chief of intelligence is knocking down rumors that he is among the government insiders who have abandoned their embattled leader, Muammar Gaddafi.
Libyan state TV aired a phone interview with the official, Bouzeid Dorda, who denied that he defected and said he will not "betray the people or the leader."

He said he never thought to the leave the country and will remain steadfast with Gaddafi "despite everything."

Two members of Gaddafi`s inner circle, including his foreign minister, have abandoned him in recent days as international airstrikes against Libya continued. While fighting between government and rebel forces appears to be drifting toward stalemate, coalition diplomatic efforts are focused on breaking Gaddafi`s hold on power.
