epa02610441 (FILE) A file photo dated 12 December 2007 shows Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi welcomed by French President Nicolas Sarkozy (L) at Palais Elysee, Paris, France. Born in 1942 in Sirte, then Italian Libya, into a Bedouin family, Gaddafi went to a military academy and joined an anti-monarchy conspiracy, which brought him into power by coup d'etat against King Idris on 01 September 1969. His 41-year rule as 'Leader of the Revolution' may now come to a violent end as uprisings have spread to Libya from neighbouring Tunisia and Egypt. While protesters are taking control of Libyan cities and the UN and many Western states imposed sanctions, 68-year-old Gaddafi is still fighting to maintain his grip on the country. EPA/MAYA VIDON
