Sporadic fighting is still going on in some neighbourhoods of the Libyan capital Tripoli.
Loyalists are attempting to regain control of parts of the city while the rebels are continuing in their quest to hunt down Gaddafi who fled his compound at Bab al-Aziziya just before it was overrun on Tuesday.
His whereabouts is still not known and rebels are reportedly guarding the airport in case he tries to fly out of the country.
Euronews correspondent Mustafa Bag was caught in crossfire on the Abu Selim side of the compound as loyalists starting shooting at rebels.
After the gunfire receded a drive alongside the compound wall on the Abu Selim side showed burnt out cars and a camp that looks to be largely abandoned.
Nearby white tents form a makeshift field hospital and some bodies are still lying on the street.
Our correspondent says there are signs that mercenaries have been fighting alongside Gaddafi loyalists in guarding the compound.
