The Treasury Department on Tuesday imposed sanctions on a key supporter of one of the sons of the late Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi.
One of the sons of ousted strongman Col. Moammar Gadhafi was negotiating his own surrender, Libyan rebels said Wednesday, while another son issued a defiant message saying that the regime would fight to the death.
Saadi Gadhafi told Al Arabiya television in a phone interview late Friday that a "new popular uprising" against the transitional council is imminent.
"The Libyan people are governed by gangs, and people must work to eradicate militias," he said. "The NTC is not a legitimate body ... and is not in control of the militias."
