World Looks To Isolate Libya's Gaddafi as Ex-Libyan Justice Minister Forms Caretaker Govt. in East
live: Libya revolt
World Looks To Isolate Libya's Gaddafi, Britain has revoked the diplomatic immunity of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi after the UN agreed to a range of sanctions against Libya amid the growing unrest.
Libya,security forces said they have switched sides and joined the opposition, which took to the streets today. Several cities are now under the control of the opposition.
Who is propping up Gaddafi?
Armed men opposed to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi are in control of Zawiyah, about 50 km (30 miles) west of the capital Tripoli, on Sunday and their red, green and black flag flew above the town.
Libya's divided capital: Face to face with Gaddafi's militiamen. This is a divided city, of contrasting moods: the mob escaping at the airport and the frenzy of those who remain. But in everyone's eyes you can sense the ferocity of recent days.
Ex-Libyan Justice Minister Forms Caretaker Govt. in East
The revolutionaries are more defiant than ever, I just hope what I learned as a little kid does not happen here as I expect it will. Be careful what you ask for you may get it and even more pointed, you know what you have but you don't know what you're going to get!
Who knows what else he has but he has tons of mustard gas. I refuse to believe that a deal making him give that up was not part of the asinine deal we had made with the mad man in recent years. Mustard gas was outlawed after WW1 but you know Kaddafi will use it on his own people. I hope those on the front lines of this revolt at least have gas masks. Tripoli braces for battle as Gaddafi digs in
As Battles Continue Libyan leader Colonel Gaddafi has started arming his civilian supporters to quash dissent, as British and Irish nationals in Tripoli plead for help from the international community.
TERRIFIED Lybians were preparing for an escalation of violence as embattled leader Muammar Gaddafi continues to cling to power. I heard him threaten to throw open the doors to all his armories letting people arm themselves to the teeth. This scum is a frigging mad man! I wish Libya and the Government thye have lined up to replace him well.
