113. "I was reported to the security forces...I come.... ...I would be killed or jailed..."
Colin Freeman, the Telegraph's correspondent in Benghazi, interviewed one of Gaddafi's military commanders, who defected to the rebels.

I was reported to the security forces and told I had no choice but to come. I thought I would be killed or jailed otherwise.

Gaddafi has never been a good man, he has never convinced me of his cause, and the morale among his troops has never been high.

But I didn't ever want any kind of fighting between Libyans, I thought that would never happen. I would rather things change in a peaceful way than fighting each other.
