A Ukrainian nurse who worked for Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has revealed that he is in good health.

The nurse, who was identified only by her first name Oksana, had been filmed secretly while reluctantly talking to a TVI reporter.

In the interview, aired late on March 5, Oksana said she had worked for Col Gaddafi, 68, for over two years.

"Two-and-a-half years ago Gaddafi was in Kiev with a visit," the Telegraph quoted her as saying.

She revealed that recruiters invited her, among other candidates, to be interviewed by Col Gaddafi himself.

"It was like casting. He is a great psychologist," she said.

Oksana, who lives in a village outside Kiev, said Col Gaddafi appeared healthy.

"The man is not 20-years old, sometimes he needs his (blood) pressure checked. He is probably in better health than you," she told the TVI reporter. (ANI)
