Tens of thousands of embattled Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's supporters rallied on Tuesday (July 19) in al -Azizyah town, 40km southwest of Tripoli. Waving the green flags and chanting "Only God, Muammar and Libya" the supporters gathered in the town main square. 

Gaddafi addressed the crowds with a live audio speech and vowed to fight on till the end. 

"We are in our homes, on our land, we will fight, we will defend, with men, women and children," he said.  The rally was the fifth in 12 days, staged to show Gaddafi's support in the towns he still controls.
