More Explosions Heard in Libyan Capital as Gadhafi Remains Defiant

Explosions and anti-aircraft fire sounded in the Libyan capital, Tripoli, early Wednesday, hours after Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi vowed to emerge victorious in the fight against rebels and international forces.

In his first public appearance in a week, Gadhafi told supporters at his compound in Tripoli that the country is ready for battle, whether it be long or short.

Libyan state television broadcast what it said was live video of Gadhafi speaking to the crowd. The Libyan leader denounced the international military attacks on his forces, calling the effort to enforce a no-fly zone over the country a crusade against Islam.
