Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi provoked outrage in Italy on Monday after trying to convert hundreds of Italian women to Islam.
Gaddafi was in Italy as part of a two-day visit.
Some 700 young women, drafted in by a hostess agency, were invited to two separate events in Rome to listen to the Libyan leader’s religious views.
Each was reportedly paid 70 euros.
