  2. In this small town, a woman called Aziza was once one of Gaddafi's bodyguards.
  3. Aziza Ibrahim comes to us bearing only her memories. 17 years following her return from Libya
  4. the "revolutionary nun" as Gaddafi calls his bodyguards
  5. decided to speak out about being one of these women.
  6. She has no photos or evidence, but we have to believe her, because she knows more than she should.
  7. "If you want to be a bodyguard, you don't marry, because he calls them nuns and nuns don't marry."
  8. "Secondly, she has to have a strong personality, have no need for her family."
  9. "She might have to kill her family."

  12. "He raised his voice against Muammar in a discussion
  13. in front of us all, as soon as he raised his voice, she shot him, in front of Muammar."
  14. In 1982, after the Israeli invasion of Beirut, Aziza travelled to Libya with a Nasserite student group
  15. As events turned out, she met Muammar, and accompanied him in his first visit to China
  16. as one of his chosen guards.
  17. "The real guards who are with him, if you notice, some are black and have a certain rank, and the other ten or so
  18. were there to give the appearance that all his guards are women. That women guard him not men

  32. "He executed 17 people, students, shooting not hanging."
  33. "17, in front of us, in this gym so the sound was amplified."
  34. "You weren't allowed to scream. You had to chant."
  35. "These are traitors. One of them, he wasn't even the traitor, his cousin was a defected pilot."
  36. "They couldn't arrest his cousin so they took him instead."
