Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi speaks at a ceremony of loyalists to mark 34 years of "people power" in Tripoli, during which he vowed to fight an uprising against his 41-year rule to "the last man, the last woman", as rebels repulsed an attack by his forces on an eastern town. His speech came as the UN refugee agency made a plea for hundreds of planes to end a gridlock at the Tunisia border with Libya, where "acres of people" fleeing the violence are still waiting to cross in freezing conditions.
