Security fears after rebels take Tripoli


While thousands celebrated what they believed to be the downfall of the Gaddafi regime, pockets of resistance remained in the capital.

Euronews correspondent Mustafa Bag:

“Right now I’m in the western part of Tripoli. It’s close to Green Square. I came here with the rebels. They were from Ikrin region. Tripoli is obviously having a historic night. There are the celebrations on one hand and on the other, people are still trying to be cautious. Opposition fores are searching soldiers on every corner of the city for those who are loyal to Gaddafi. It is also said that there are still snipers on some buildings. Besides, I can also hear NATO warplanes flying over the capital. All I can say, things remain unclear in Tripoli which currently has a security vacuum.”
