CIA joins search for Gaddafi
US intelligence has joined in the search for Muammar Gaddafi, a White House spokesman said in Washington on Thursday.
He said CIA operatives, reconnaissance planes and drones were all being used in the operation. The CIA believes the embattled Libyan leader may be hiding in one of an estimated 40 shelters in the capital Tripoli and elsewhere in the country.
The Americans share the obtained information with the opposition Transitional National Council.
Meanwhile, in a radio address on Thursday Gaddafi urged his supporters to take up arms and crush the rebels.
