A Libyan journalist says the regime is covering up the condition of one of Gaddafi's sons that sustained serious injuries in an aerial attack carried out by a defecting pilot.


Sulaiman Duga has told Al-Arbia news channel that Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, the son of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi, should take care of his seriously wounded brother instead of making claims of victory against opposition forces.

Gaddafi's son sustained severe burn injuries on Tuesday after a defected pilot attacked Bab al-Azizia, a military barracks situated in the southern suburbs of Tripoli.

Reports say he is fighting death in a hospital in Tripoli.

The remarks come after Saif al-Islam claimed that regime's forces have retaken the opposition-controlled Western city of Misrata.

Moreover, Saif al-Islam has also asserted that revolutionaries holed up in the eastern city of Benghazi will be defeated within the next 48 hours.

The city has come to be known as the capital of the Libyan Revolution and is home to the interim Transitional National Council.

The National Libyan Transitional Council has warned of a massacre in Benghazi if the international community does not intervene.

Meanwhile, thousands have been killed in Gaddafi regime's continuing crackdown on opposition protesters ever since the Libyan uprising began in mid-February.
