Libya: Rebels celebrate in Tripoli

Heavy fighting is continuing in parts of the Libyan capital, Tripoli, after rebel forces streamed into the city.

Armed residents in Tripoli took over Green Square, previously the scene of pro-Gaddafi demonstrations. The rebels say they now control 80% of the capital.

The BBC's Matthew Price said fighting had continued after dawn.
