Muammar Gaddafi's daughter Aisha Gaddafi described as the Claudia Schiffer of North Africa by the Arabic press could have easily graced the pages of Vogue magazine but she opted for a role to further her father's cause.
The Telegraph reported last month that she tried to evade the Libyan conflict by attempting to fly to Malta but was denied entry.
She was the Goodwill Ambassador for United Nations Development Program (UNDP) since 2009 and worked as an emissary to tackle the HIV and also violence against women in Libya. The Independent, however, reported that she was recently relieved from her UN duties following the bloody repression of a revolt against her father in Libya.
In an exclusive interview with The Telegraph in October, the glamorous lawyer who was part of the defense team for Saddam Hussein war crimes trial, said about her father as the man is the man. He never changes. He is a man of principles, he believes in causes, defending the poor and underdog, he never changes the main ideas that he believes in.
Aisha is married to Ahmed al-Gaddafi al-Qahsi, a cousin and army colonel, and is mother of three children. According to a report in AOL , she is the only daughter among Gaddafi's eight children.
Scenes of coalition air strikes are not new to her as at the age of nine, she was a witness to the US air strike in which Gaddafi's adopted daughter Hana was killed violently. Speaking about the experience, she told The Telegraph: I woke (up) to the thunder of the bombs and the screams of my sister with blood spattered over me.
Aisha was also a supporter of IRA in her youth and on being asked why she supported the anti-American resistance in Iraq, she said: When you have an occupying army coming from abroad, raping your women and killing your own people, it is only legitimate that you fight them.
