TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi told supporters in Tripoli’s Green Square on Friday he would open arsenals “when necessary” to arm the Libyan people against the “enemy.”

“We can crush any enemy. We can crush it with the people’s will. The people are armed and when necessary, we will open arsenals to arm all the Libyan people and all Libyan tribes.”
