Libyan website call for celebrating Gaddafi`s birthday
Tripoli: A Libyan website on Thursday called for celebrations to mark what would have been the 70th birthday of slain leader Muammar Gaddafi.
"We offer to organise the leader`s birthday celebration," said the pro-Gaddafi Libya Free Press website.
"Gaddafi always is a very unfavourable figure for world political elite - a bright, independent and fantastically popular person," it said.
The website said the late leader was born June 7, 1942.
Gaddafi was killed in his native city of Sirte Oct 20 last year by rebel fighters who toppled his regime that lasted more than 40 years.
