Algeria angered by Aisha Gaddafi comments

02 December 2011, 16:35

Algiers - Algeria on Thursday slammed as "unacceptable" comments by Aisha Gaddafi, the daughter of the slain Libyan leader, after she called for the overthrow of her country's interim government.

The foreign ministry warned that she had abused the hospitality of Algeria, where she fled in August along with her mother and two of her brothers and was granted exile on humanitarian grounds.

"We deplore these unacceptable statements as much as we deplore the fact that Madame Aisha Gaddafi has violated, for the second time, the rules of the hospitality that was accorded to her in Algeria as a humanitarian gesture," said Amar Belani, spokesperson of Foreign Minister Murad Medelci.

"The Gaddafi family is hosted in Algeria for a [limited] time," he said in a statement quoting the minister, also warning that the "new transgression" would carry consequences.

The late dictator's daughter said in an audio message aired Tuesday on Syrian-based Arrai television: "Avenge the blood of your martyr. Revolt against the new government."

She also stressed that her father Muammar Gaddafi, who was killed on October 20 after his capture by forces loyal to the National Transitional Council, "did not abandon" Libya's people.

Her comments are thought to be in violation of an exile agreement with Algeria to refrain from any political activity.

She had already made similar comments back in September, when she denounced the NTC as "traitors" and called on the Libyan people to rise up against the new rulers.
