LIBYA: Rebels in Tripoli may have Kadafi surrounded
About 1,000 rebels surrounded two buildings filled with Kadafi loyalists in the neighborhood next to the Libyan leader's captured Bab Azizia compound, according to the Associated Press.
A rebel commander told CNN that the rebels had Kadafi cornered in a complex of buildings near his former compound. The rebels believe Kadafi may be hiding in the buildings with one or more of his sons, Reuters is reporting.
"They are together. They are in a small hole," one of the fighters involved in the battle, Muhammad Gomaa, told Reuters. "Today we finish. Today we will end that."
Mahmoud Bakoush, a rebel commander at the site, told the AP that rumors that one of Kadafi's sons might be in the buildings hadn't been unconfirmed.
