Libya: Opposition Pushes On; Gadhafi Still On The Run
As Libya's Transitional National Council prepares to move its leadership from the eastern city of Behghazi to Tripoli, Moammar Gadhafi remains "on the run with his regime in tatters," NPR.org writes this morning.
According to the BBC, "British Tornado jets fired precision-guided missiles against a large bunker in Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi's hometown of Sirte, the U.K. Ministry of Defense (MoD) has said."
Gadhafi, as The Guardian reports, has issued another audio message in which he tells his supporters to keep fighting. "Don't leave Tripoli for the rats. Fight them, fight them, and kill them," he says.
But, "clearly, it sounds a little bit ... like a hollow message" from Gadhafi, NPR's Lourdes Garcia-Navarro tells our Newscast Desk. She's in Tripoli and says that the capital "is not going to be falling back into the hands of [Gadhafi] loyalists. The most that the loyalists can do now is create a sense of limited chaos and instability."
Note: NPR follows Associated Press style on the spelling of Gadhafi's name. Other organizations do not.
