'Colonel Gaddafi was very polite and a funny man': British actress invited to Islam conversion party described meeting with Libyan leader.
A British actress was among 500 glamorous women invited to a 'convert to Islam party' thrown by Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi in Italy yesterday.
Clio Evans, 28, was recruited via an agency along with hundreds of other women for the second day running as Gaddafi called on them to embrace Islam during an official visit.
It is the fourth time in less than a year the Libyan leader has hosted such an event.
Italian politicians and the Vatican condemned the party and branded claims that three women had converted as 'a stunt'.
