Larijani: I Hope a Popular Government Will Come to Power in Libya

Larijani in his message expressed hope that the new path will continue to the end and till the establishment of a government based on the people's wishes coupled with the presence of Muslim revolutionaries without intervention of foreigners.

 "The heroic people of Libya rose up against tyrant rulers on their own will and proved that the era of despotism and autocracy has come to an end in the age of nations' awakening and that the wish of the people must be respected," said Larijani in his message.

"The noble nation of Libya knows very well that international looters led by the US have no aim but to plunder the huge wealth of their country and that they have no regard for the rights of the nations. Therefore, any negligence vis-à-vis their intervention would have irreparable and dangerous harms. We are confident that the Muslim people of Libya, particularly the ulema, intellectuals and dear youth will not allow global arrogant powers to replace the ousted dictator," the Majlis Speaker added.

In conclusion of the message, larijani said: "On my own behalf and on behalf of the members of the Islamic Consultative Assembly, I would like to congratulate the revolutionaries and Muslim people of the friendly and brotherly state of Libya and I hope to see development of relations between the two countries."

Fresh fighting has erupted between Libyan opposition fighters and government troops near Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi's Bab al-Aziziyah compound in the capital, Tripoli.

According to news agency reports, Libyan regime tanks shelled opposition fighters, who were trying to seize Gaddafi's compound on Tuesday.

The fighters earlier said they took control of the city's airport and the state television building.

Meanwhile, opposition forces in the nearby western city of Misratah said they intercepted a column of government troops moving toward Tripoli, adding that the convoy was from the city of Sirte and consisted of several busses packed with soldiers and mercenaries.

Sirte, which is located between the city of Brega in the east and Misratah in the west, is Gaddafi's hometown and a bastion of his regime.

Meanwhile, Gaddafi's son Seif al-Islam has made a surprise and defiant appearance in Tripoli two days after opposition fighters claimed they had captured him in the city.

Seif al-Islam turned up outside a hotel near Bab al-Aziziyah compound, situated in the southern suburbs of Tripoli.

He claimed the opposition forces had in fact fallen into a trap by moving into Tripoli, adding the city was still under government control.

The Libyan fighters swept into the heart of Libya's capital city early on Monday, and seized the control of much of Tripoli without facing significant resistance from regime forces.

Libya has been the scene of intense fighting between regime troops and fighters since a revolution seeking to topple Gaddafi began in mid-February.
