    Last week Mansoor Arbabsiar became known to the world as the man accused of playing a major role in an alleged Iran-backed plot to kill the Saudi ambassador to the US.

    Muammar Gaddafi's rule in Libya lasted for more than four decades, a record that few world leaders can boast. Having siezed power in a military coup at at the age of 27, he imposed a pan-Arab, anti-imperialist philosophy that won him both friends and enemies. Despite admitting that he had a nuclear weapons programme, he was tolerated by the international community because of Libya's rich oil deposits, a dwindling international resource.
