Rebels beg for troops A group of youth demonstrate calling for intervention in the besieged Libyan city of Misrata Picture: AFP MISRATA: A rebel official in Libyas besieged city of Misrata has pleaded for Britain and France to send troops to help fight Muammar Gaddafis forces. A senior member of Misratas governing council, Nuri Abdullah Abdullati, said they were asking for the troops on the basis of humanitarian principles, in the first request for boots on the ground. Before we were asking for no foreign interference, but that was before Gaddafi used Grad rockets and planes. Now its a life or death situation, he said. His plea came as Gaddafi troops and rebel forces engaged in fierce fighting in southeast Misrata. The din subsided only briefly when NATO planes were heard overhead. The rebels in Misrata, which has been under siege for more than a month and seen hundreds killed, have no direct contact with coalition forces. Abdullati said the request was sent last week to the rebel Transitional National Council in Benghazi, but there had yet been no reply. Separately, Saif al-Islam, a son of Gaddafi, said he was confident the rebellion would fail. I am very optimistic and we will win, he said on Allibya television. The situation changes every day in our favour. Saif al-Islam vowed that his fathers regime would not seek revenge against the rebels fighting to oust him.
