Libya conflict: Tripoli 'quieter' as rebels celebrate

Libyan rebels have announced an amnesty for anyone within Col Muammar Gaddafi's "inner circle" who captures or kills him, and a $1.7m (£1m) reward.

Col Gaddafi's whereabouts are unknown, though rebels have said they think he is still in or around Tripoli.

The BBC's Rupert Wingfield-Hayes is in the Libyan capital and said that the city appears much quieter than it has been in recent days.

Although fighting continues in some areas, people are also coming out on the streets to celebrate.

Many of the rebels gathered in Green Square on Wednesday night to mark the perceived end of Gaddafi's rule with fireworks.
