Heavy Clashes Near Qaddafi Compound as Rebels Overtake Most of Tripoli

Well they have moved into Tripoli will they hold it?
Probably not without NATO's help, but whatever.


After a morning of heavy fighting near Muammar al-Qaddafi's compound in Tripoli, the Libyan rebels' top diplomat in London said that only five percent of the capital city was still controlled by forces loyal to the Libyan leader.

Mahmud Nacua says there are "still some pockets" of support for Qaddafi, but rebels are asserting control.

He says they have not yet found Qaddafi but "the fighters will turn over every stone to find him, to arrest him, and to put him in the court."

Meanwhile, NATO announced that combat air patrols over Libya will continue until all pro-Qaddafi forces surrender.
