The daughter Muammar Gaddafi has urged the Libyan people to rise up and overthrow the transitional government which toppled her father's regime.

In an audio message broadcast on Syria's al-Rai television station, Aisha Gaddafi called for a revolt against Libya's new rulers, a government that she said "arrived with the planes of Nato."

"My father has not left, he is always among us," she said, following the traditional 40-day mourning period after his death. "Don't forget the orders of your father urging you to continue fighting, even if you no longer hear his voice."

Col Gaddafi, who ruled Libya 42 years, was captured with his son Muatassim on October 20 as he fled from the city of Sirte. He was later shot dead by rebel forces.

As the Libyan capital of Tripoli fell to rebel forces in August, Aisha, her mother and two of her brothers took refuge in neighbouring Algeria.

Aisha's appeal puts her in direct conflict with the terms of a deal she and her family members made with Algeria's government, promising not to make public statements at the risk of losing their status as humanitarian refugees.

After similar statements in September, Algerian officials warned that she could be expelled.

The Algerian regime had close ties with Gaddafi but has since worked to repair strained relations with Libya's new leaders.
