What sort of leader is Col Muammar Gaddafi?

Col Muammar Gaddafi has ruled Libya for 40 years.

During that time he has been shunned as a supporter of international terrorism but in more recent years relations with the West have been improving.

Britain's Foreign Secretary says he has seen reports that he may already have fled the country.
