Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has made a television appearance after weeks of absence.

Gaddafi appeared on Libyan state television for several minutes.

A camera filmed him from a distance as he sat with tribal leaders. He did not speak.

The Libyan leader has not appeared on camera in weeks, prompting rumours that he may have been injured in the Nato attack on his compound this month that killed one of his sons.

Gaddafi was meeting tribal leaders in what appeared to be the plush Rixos hotel where foreign reporters are staying.

To confirm the authenticity of the screening, the camera zoomed in on the date shown on a television screen close to Gaddafi. It read Wednesday, April 11.
