Gaddafi urges jihad against Switzerland

1:33 pm on 26 February 2010

Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has called for a jihad against Switzerland.

He criticised a recent Swiss vote against the building of minarets and described the country as an infidel, obscene state.

Libya's relations with Switzerland broke down in 2008 when a son of Mr Gaddafi was arrested in a Geneva hotel and charged with abusing domestic servants.
