Members of Colonel Gaddafi's former government outside Libya say they are starting a political movement aimed at radical change, the BBC has learnt.Update, May 7: This was no quick flashin the pan that burned itself out. Just now, at least per the on-the-ball Libya 360˚ on May 4, the LPNM has recently released its founding declaration, in Arabic and English. I haven't read it yet, but here's the link:
In a message which appears to be genuine, one of Gaddafi's senior officials said they wanted to prevent the outbreak of another civil war.
The man asked to remain anonymous to protect relatives still in the country.
Last week Saadi Gaddafi, another of the former leader's sons, who is in exile in Niger, warned of an imminent uprising inside Libya.
The former senior official told the BBC that most of the leadership of what he calls "Green Libya" were forming the Libyan Popular National Movement.
In a statement posted on several websites the group said the situation in Libya "is becoming worse every day.
"There's very little interest from the international media in the many horrors that have taken place. We are reorganising ourselves outside Libya in an inclusive political movement that would encompass all Libyans who understand the terrible reality of Libya," it said.
