A top UN official has condemned Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's call for a jihad, or holy war, against Switzerland

Col Gaddafi attacked a Swiss vote against the building of Islamic minarets. Libya and Switzerland are embroiled in a long-running diplomatic row. The dispute dates back to 2008, when one of Gaddafi's sons was arrested in Geneva, accused of assaulting two servants. The Libyan leader made his jihad comments while speaking at a meeting in Benghazi to mark the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad.
