Libyan TV broadcasts new footage of Gaddafi

TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Libyan state television on Sunday broadcast pictures of leader Muammar Gaddafi meeting the president of the international chess federation.

Russia’s Interfax news agency quoted Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, who is also a former Russian provincial governor, as saying he played a game of chess in Tripoli Sunday with Gaddafi.

He said the Libyan leader told him he had no intention of leaving the country.

This story was corrected to make clear Ilyumzhinov is no longer a provincial governor
