Libya: Hillary Clinton on Gaddafi's letter to Obama

The US has rebuffed a personal appeal from Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi to US President Barack Obama, repeating that he must resign and go into exile.

Referring to Barack Obama as "our son", the Libyan leader urged the US leader to end an "unjust war against a small people of a developing country", and dismissed the rebels as "al-Qaeda" militants.

In response to the letter, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that "I don't think there is any mystery about what is expected from Mr Gaddafi".
