Muammar Gaddafi’s compound has been overrun as rebel forces gain control over the capitol city. Fighting has been intense in areas around the capitol and within the compound itself. No information on Gaddafi’s whereabouts is known at this time. Gaddafi was last seen in his compound in a struggle with a young street urchin over what appeared to be an old oil lamp.
After taking power from the sultan 40 years ago through sorcery, he has kept the sultan’s daughter locked within his compound. With the arrival of Prince Ali Ababwa and friends, a fierce rebellion has ripped through the country as his control has waned. Mad with power and greed, Gaddafi recently turned himself into a large snake while struggling with the street urchin. Rumors are persistent that the urchin and the prince are one in the same. Regardless of the location of Gaddafi, Libyan rebels face an uphill battle in the construction of a new government. Optimism remains high despite the ongoing struggle as protesters continue to rally and sing what has become the new national anthem.
