No rest untill Gaddafi’s capture: Abdul Jalil

Tripoli: Mustafa Abdul Jalil, head of Libya’s National Transitional Council speaking on behalf of the Libyan rebels have pledged to capture Muammar Gaddafi even as NATO forces continue air strikes on Gaddafi’s compound in Tripoli in the early hours today. Gaddafi’s whereabouts continue to remain unknown. Speaking at a press conference on Monday, Mustafa Abdul Jalil said, “Gaddafi’s era is over and the real victory of Libyan revolution lies in his capture”. He however, promised that Gaddafi would be given a fair trial if captured alive. Except for Bab al-Aziziyah, Gaddafi’s longtime command centre, the rest of Tripoli is totally under the rebels control. Libyan rebel forces took control of most of Tripoli on Sunday night and are still clearing up the remnants of the pro-Gaddafi forces. Though the Libyan rebel forces are taking over Libya the Gaddafi forces still maintain control over the Libyan states of Surt and Saba. Although the rebels are closing in on one of Gaddafi’s last bastions, they were confronted by resistance of heavily-armed troops loyal to the Libyan leader. Talking about Libya after the fall of Gaddafi, Jalil said, the new Libya with Tripoli as the new capital, would be a mild state, a responsible member of the international community and it would protect its people from political assassinations, arrest and hanging. The rebel forces have promised to put down their weapons and take the path of peace after the rebel comes to an end. South Africa has denied that it plans to give Gadaffi sanctuary,dismissing the skepticism spread regarding South Africa’s role in the dissapearance of Gaddafi. In Johannesburg, Minister of International Relations and Cooperation Maite Nkoana-Mashabane has also dismissed reports that the country sent planes to Libya to arrange for the exit of Gaddafi
