Libya: Civil order must be preserved, says Burt

Rebel forces trying to overthrow the regime of Col Muammar Gaddafi in Libya have arrived in the capital city, Tripoli.

Crowds cheered them as they arrived, and tore down posters of the man who has led Libya for the past 42 years.

Col Gaddafi's whereabouts are not known, but both his sons have been captured.

Foreign Office Minister Alistair Burt said it was important that civil order was preserved on the streets of Tripoli.
