Italy's prime minister has himself been involved in several sex scandals and is said to have arranged the sending of the escorts to an opponent of Mr Gaddafi's as a favour to the Libyan leader.
Col Gaddafi was the surprise choice as leader of the 53-nation African Union in February 2009 much to the unease of countries such as Tanzania and Nigeria.
Details of how the escorts were provided were revealed by Nuri Al Mismari, a former close aide of Col Gaddafi's, in an interview with Arab newspaper Ashaeq Al-Awsat in Paris. More...
