TRIPOLI, Feb. 21 (Xinhua) -- Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's son Seif al-Islam said in a televised address early Monday that Libya was in danger of civil wars if the clashes between the security forces and protestors escalate, according to Doha-based Al-Jazeera.
He said that his father was in the country and backed by the army, saying that Gaddafi "was not a leader as (Zine El Abidine) Ben Ali or (Hosni) Mubarak."
"We will fight to the last minute, until the last bullet," he said.
Seif al-Islam said Libya's parliament would convene on Monday to discuss a "clear" reform agenda, while the government would also raise wages.
"We will have to lay down a constitution for the country," he said, pledging to make reforms in future.
Dubai-based Al-Alabiya and Al-Jazeera reported earlier that Gaddafi has left for Brazil or Venezuela, and his son Seif al-Islam took over as the head of the country. But this was not confirmed by any Libyan official sources.
