Tripoli - and the fighting keeps going.

As the situation in Libya keeps changing, and now that rebel forces have stormed one of the Gaddafi compounds it would seem to be only a matter of time before Tripoli is completely in rebel hands. But heavy fighting continues and reports are still conflicting.

So at the moment the balance continues to shift. Here are two BBC reports - one via the BBC Radio 4 program PM (airing live at 9:00 am PDT) and the following Six O'Clock News (at 10:00 am PDT) with on the ground reports from various areas around Tripoli and other parts of Libya as another day in this move to unseat the Gaddafi regime continues.
