Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi spoke by telephone with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on Saturday, the fifth day of protests calling for the end of Mubarak's regime, the Libyan news agency Jana reported.
Without giving details of their conversation, the news agency said Gaddafi called Mubarak "to reassure himself on the situation in Egypt."
Gaddafi, 68, has privileged relations with the 82-year-old Egyptian head of state, whose country has tens of thousands of expatriate workers inside Libya.
