Anti-government uprising and protests that swept Libya over the past days published a newspaper in attempt to cast light on the latest developments in the country, Libya's Quryna newspaper said.

The "Feb. 17 revolution" has published its first edition of " Libya" newspaper on Wednesday. The paper carried "We do not surrender. Score a victory or die," the famous slogan of Libya's legendary leader Omar al-Mukhtar, who fought an uprising against the Italian rule and was hanged in 1931.

The paper published an article titled "The paranoid and the last speech," in an appointed reference to Tuesday's address given by leader Muammar Gaddafi in which he said he would not resign and vowed to fight to the end.

Inspired by streets-born uprisings that had swept Tunisia and Egypt and forced their leaders to step down, thousands of Libyans have started a string of protests against Gaddafi's 41-year rule.
