Libya's Moammar El-Qaddafi has arrived in Moscow, pitching his tent in a garden on the Kremlin grounds:

A large, flat-screen television was switched on inside the tent.

Libya’s Moammar El-Qaddafi has arrived in Moscow, pitching his tent in a garden on the Kremlin grounds:

Located a few meters from the building where Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has his office, the military-style tent was decorated with North African fabrics and a metal barbecue grill has been set up in front, a Reuters reporter said.

A large, flat-screen television was switched on inside the tent.
