Three days in the battle for Tripoli

Libyan rebels have taken over Col Muammar Gaddafi's compound in Tripoli, one of the final areas under the Libyan leader's control.

The rebels swept into Tripoli at the weekend, but after a swift advance, they met stiff resistance in a number of areas on Monday.

BBC correspondents Matthew Price, Orla Guerin and Rupert Wingfield-Hayes have been reporting from various locations on their progress towards Tripoli.
