Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi hosted another Islam conversion party attended by 500 glamorous women during the first day of an official visit to Italy.
Gaddafi was the only man at the event – apart from security officers who were kept outside – while the women who were invited to take part were all asked to ‘dress demurely’.
Three women were said to have undergone ‘spontaneous conversions’, while others walked out in disgust saying they could ‘not stand to hear such rubbish’.

The event, at the Libyan Academy in Rome, comes nine months after Gaddafi hosted two similar evenings at the official residence of the Libyan ambassador in Rome Abdulhafad Gaddur.

‘They said they didn’t agree with Gaddafi coming to Italy and telling them to convert and marry Muslims.
‘Most women stayed on and there was a buffet provided for us, but there was no meat and there was no alcohol only water and soft drinks.’
Gaddafi also flew in 30 Berber horses which will give a display this evening at a military parade ground in Rome attended by Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.
The two-day visit is to mark the two-year anniversary of a ‘pact of friendship’ signed between Gaddafi and Berlusconi which has promoted extensive Italian business development in Libya.
