Hala Misrati, Libya State TV Anchor, Waves Gun On Air, Is Detained (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

A Libyan state television anchor gained new notoriety when she waved a gun on air and promised to defend the station from rebel attacks.

Hala Misrati--whose zealous defense of the Gaddafi regime brought her public attention when the US and NATO first attacked Libya in March--waved a pistol around during a weekend broadcast, as rebels closed in on Tripoli.

"We are willing to become martyrs," she cried.

On Monday, CNN reported that rebel forces said they had detained Misrati.
