Rebels Capture Gaddafi Compound: Where is Muammar Gaddafi?
Libyan Rebels Take Muammar Gaddafi's Tripoli Compound
The Libyan Rebels have stormed Muammar Gaddafi's Bab al-Azizya compound in Tripoli. The rebels have found weapons, ammunition, uniforms, and documents, but no sign of Muammar Gaddafi himself.
Gaddafi's compound was not only a cache of weapons and supplies, but also an access point to underground tunnels leading to various neighborhoods in Tripoli, which were invaluable to the dictator's troops.
The explosions and gunfire heard in and around the Gaddafi compound is celebratory. CNN's Sara Sidner, reporting from the compound is getting repeatedly drowned out by the gunfire, as well as being hit by the odd bit of shrapnel. She interrupts her report, turning to an off-camera rebel and requesting, "please don't shoot, sir".
Where is Muammar Gaddafi?
Muammar Gaddafi is no longer running Libya, but, until he is found, the battle for Libya can not be definitively won by the NTC. The question will be: who is actually running Libya, and what happens next?
Meanwhile, the rebels admitted that Gaddafi's son, Saif Al-Islam, has escaped.
