"Women paid to listen to Kadhafi speech: media
(AFP) – 1 day ago

ROME — Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi gave a speech to 100 young Italian women recruited by a model agency and urged them to convert to Islam, newspapers reported on Monday.

The young women selected for Kadhafi's speech in Rome late Sunday each had to be at least 1.70 metres (five feet seven inches) be "pleasant" and "well dressed" but low cut tops and mini-skirts were banned, the newspapers said.

Each woman was paid between 50 and 60 euros and was hired by the Hostessweb agency, the reports said.

The women were told to got to a luxury hotel in the Via Veneto, without knowing why, and were then taken in buses to the Libyan ambassador's residence. Kadhafi is in Rome for the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) summit.

The leader of the Libyan revolution arrived one hour late at 10:30pm to the amazement of the women who had expected a party rather than a lesson on the history of relations between Islam and the West and the role of women.

Kadhafi spoke for one hour during which the women were given nothing to eat or drink, the reports said."

LOL, yes I saw that :O) I just wondered if that's the common spelling in the US. I've only ever seen it 'Qaddafi' or 'Gaddafi' before.

You know, I have no idea about the spelling here. Guess it depends on the news reporter, ROFL! You'd think a standard for accuracy would require reporters to spell his name accurately, so it would be the same in all articles, wouldn't you? "Creative/inventive spelling," anyone? :D

I guess that photo-op and spin story are gone, with the public knowledge that the women had to be paid to listen to the guy. lol Nice try, though.
