Gaddafi tent on Trump land


A tent being pitched to house Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, on land belonging to Donald Trump, has run into trouble with local authorities.

Workers were told to stop construction at the estate 30 miles north of New York city, because it violated local regulations.

Plans to erect the tent in New Jersey, where the Libyan embassy owns property, and in Central Park had both been turned down.
