Libyan rebel leaders say they have captured Gaddafi’s son Seif al Islam Gaddafi in Tripoli today. The rebels are inside of Tripoli at Green Square.
Rebel forces have captured Seif al Islam Gaddafi, son of the Libyan leader, in Tripoli and are surrounding the Gadhafi compound, Bab al Aziziya, a representative of the rebel government told ABC News.
Mohamad al Akari, a Transitional National Council advisor, said that if Moammar Gadhafi is still in Tripoli, they believe he is in Bab al Aziziya.
“Tonight it’s over,” Akari said.
Libyan rebel forces are now in Green Square in the heart of Tripoli, according to multiple reports.
Earlier today, rebel forces pushed into the western outskirts of the Libyan capital without meeting any resistance. The rebels reached Janzour, a Tripoli suburb, around nightfall today and were greeted by civilians waving rebel flags.
There are now reports that Gaddafi has fled to Algeria.
