Libya: Rebel fighters 'enter Tripoli'
Rebel fighters have streamed into the outskirts of Tripoli this evening with little sign of resistance.
However the Libyan government has remained defiant in the face of the rebel advances.
A spokesman, Moussa Ibrahim, has called for an immediate ceasefire, warning of bloodshed on the streets if the rebels continue.
The BBC's Matthew Price reports from Tripoli.
