Tripoli, Sept 3:   Libya's new leaders won massive international support for their plans to rebuild the war-shattered country but faced threats of a long guerrilla war from defeated strongman Gaddafi on Friday.

 
“Prepare yourselves for a gang and guerrilla war, for urban warfare and popular resistance in every town... to defeat the enemy everywhere,” Gaddafi warned from his hideout in one of two audio tapes aired on Arab satellite television.
 
Boosted by promises of billions of dollars in cash from unfrozen assets of the Gaddafi regime, the rebel National Transitional Council prepared to put into practice a road map for bringing democracy to Libya.
 
A council tasked with drafting a constitution for Libya should be elected within eight months and a president should be elected within 20 months, the NTC's representative in Britain, Guma al-Gamaty , told the BBC Friday.
 
He said the process of transition was already under way and the NTC would move properly to Tripoli from its original base in Benghazi within a few days.
 
For the first eight months, the council would lead Libya, at the end of which time a council of about 200 people should have been directly elected, Gamaty said, referring to plans drawn up in March and refined last month.
