Moammar Kadafi has surfaced--but only on the radio.

In comments that aired moments ago on Al Arabiya and other Arab stations, Kadafi called on Libyans to “destroy” rebels who have overtaken Tripoli and forced his regime into hiding, according to the Associated Press.

The appeal comes as intense fighting has erupted in the Libyan capital, with some rebels claiming to have Kadafi and one of his sons surrounded in some buildings near his ransacked Bab Azizia complex.
