Libyan rebels have stormed Tripoli, Libya’s capital city.
The rebels claim they have taken control of most of the city.
A spokesperson for Libyan leader Qaddafi said that 1,300 people have been killed and blames NATO. Various reports suggest that NATO was indeed involved.
Qaddafi himself issued several crazy audio messages on state TV calling for citizens to repel the rebels. There have been various reports suggesting that Qaddafi’s sons have surrendered.
Qaddafi’s whereabouts are unknown. The BBC has reported that he has fled to Algeria.
President Obama issued a statement late Sunday evening saying “the future of Libya is now in the hands of the Libyan people.”
Al Jazeera is covering the situation closely (link below).
