Gadhafi to sue news agency for gaffe
by UPI

TRIPOLI, Libya - Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi on Tuesday threatened to file a lawsuit against a Palestinian news agency that erroneously reported that he was in a coma.

After a meeting in a banquet hall with Ghanaian President John Kufuor, Gadhafi's staff summoned reporters to a news conference to see the 65-year-old leader, the BBC reported.

Gadhafi said the report that claimed he was comatose after a stroke on the Maan news agency's Web site on Monday was another slight on him by the Arab world.

"The Arabs and those who control them are behind this. But we are going to sue this news agency," he said. "From now on, no one will lie and get away with it. They should face justice."

Since the 1990s, Gadhafi has accused Arabic countries of abandoning Libya when international sanctions were imposed for its weapons program, which Gadhafi finally shut down.

The Maan agency removed the story from its site on Monday and posted an apology that cited an unreliable source for the erroneous report.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas also reportedly telephoned Gadhafi about the incident but details were not released, the report said.
