Chaos in Tripoli
Russian agencies quote Ukrainian medical workers in the Libyan capital Tripoli as speaking of chaotic shooting, barricade building, carjacking and mass looting around. Residents try to stay indoors. Eyewitnesses say armed gangs have ransacked the Embassy of Bulgaria and attacked the Embassy of South Korea and the residential compound of the Ambassador of Ukraine.
In central Tripoli, supporters of Muammar Gaddafi are believed to be still holding out. The whereabouts of their leader himself is everyone’s guess.
Analysts believe it is too early to say that the rebels are in full control in Tripoli.
