10:02 CEST+02:00

Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi on Thursday accused French President Nicolas Sarkozy of being a "war criminal" who had stained his country's history.

"This Sarkozy is a war criminal who has stained the history of the French nation and destroyed his country's ties with Libya and Muslim countries," Qaddafi said in a message to supporters in an eastern district of Tripoli.

"He's mentally disturbed," he charged in the message relayed over loudspeaker.

"By leading a crusade against the Libyan people, he has led his country into a lost war," said Qaddafi. "He is not a Frenchman. The (French) people should ban this criminal."
