Libyan rebels have swept into central Tripoli past celebrating crowds as forces loyal to Colonel Muammar Gaddafi melt away. Gaddafi, whose whereabouts are unknown, has vowed to fight on.
REUTERS - Jubilant rebel fighters swept into the heart of Tripoli as Muammar Gaddafi’s forces collapsed and crowds took to the streets to celebrate what they saw as the rapidly approaching end of his four decades of absolute power.
Rebels waving opposition flags and firing into the air drove into Green Square, a symbolic showcase the government had until recently used for mass demonstrations in support of the now embattled Gaddafi. Rebels immediately began calling it Martyrs Square.
