Libyan woman guided NATO bombs to Gaddafi targets

Libyan woman guided NATO bombs to Gaddafi targets

Twenty-four year old spied on military facilities; She passed on details to NATO via secret network; Woman operated under codename "Nomidia"

She found out from her contacts that Gaddafi’s security forces had tracked one of the SIM cards she was using, and knew her real first name, though not her family name.

“So I turned off all my mobiles and I kept moving, as well as the whole family, from house to house, just to be safe,” she said. “That was the most difficult situation.”

Now that Gaddafi’s grip on Libya is broken, Nomidia — derived from Numidia, the name of an ancient North African kingdom — is modest about her role.

She described her contribution to undermining Gaddafi’s rule in a matter-of-fact way and had to be prompted to reflect on what had been at stake.

“I was expecting I might be arrested at any moment. That was on my mind all the time,” she said.

But she added: “I wasn’t scared at all … I was very optimistic that I would succeed. That everybody would succeed. I thank Allah that I’m alive to see the result of the job that I did and others did.” (By Christian Lowe; Additional reporting by Mohammed Abbas in Tripoli; Editing by Louise Ireland)
