Libya unrest: Fighting in Tripoli as loyalists hold out

Libyan rebels and forces loyal to Col Muammar Gaddafi have fought running battles in Tripoli, a day after the fugitive leader's compound was overrun.

There have been fierce firefights in Bab al-Aziziya, as well as in several southern and central areas of the city.

However, foreign journalists have been allowed to leave a hotel where they have been confined for several days.
