TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — Libyan rebels claimed to be in control of most of the Libyan capital on Monday after their lightning advance on Tripoli heralded the fall of Moammar Gadhafi's nearly 42-year regime, but scattered battles erupted and the mercurial leader's whereabouts remained unknown.
The international community called on Gadhafi to step down and moved ahead with post-war planning as euphoric residents celebrated in the Green Square, the symbolic heart of the Gadhafi regime, but colleagues warned he wouldn't go easily.
NATO promised to continue airstrikes until all pro-Gadhafi forces surrender or return to barracks.
