Libyan rebels have Gadaffi surrounded in Tripoli

Tripoli - Lines of cars stretched for kilometers as motorists waited for free gasoline, rebel forces took over refineries, and the Moammar Gadaffi government struggled to hold the airport.

The 41 – year reign of the boy Colonel who led a coup and nationalized the oil fields of multinational petroleum producers in 1969 is coming to a close as thousands of rebels celebrate in the streets.

The capitol city is in ruins, as are suburbs stretching along the coast to the eastern population centers. Unconfirmed reports that Col. Gadaffi's son has been taken prisoner of war persist, rebel radio stating that he is being treated well so he can be brought to trial for unspecified abuses.
