In 1998, one of his female bodyguards sacrificed her life to save Gaddafi from an assassination. Seven others were seriously wounded when the Islamic fundamentalists in Libya ambushed Gaddafi's motorcade.

The dead bodyguard, rumored to be his favorite, threw herself on top of the Libyan leader when rebels opened fire on his motorcade.

Gaddafi handpicked his female bodyguards. All of them swear an oath that they will give their lives for him and they never leave his side. There is no shortage of volunteers for what is taken as a prestigious job.

A special training college puts recruits through a tough program. Girls who don't drop out emerge as trained killers, experts with firearms & martial arts, said.
