Libya's new leaders will declare liberation on Sunday, officials said, a move that will start the clock for elections after months of bloodshed that culminated in the death of longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi.
Libya's new rulers think Col. Moammar Gadhafi may be hiding in the southern desert under the protection of ethnic Tuareg fighters, while two of his sons are holed up in cities besieged by revolutionary forces elsewhere in the North African nation, officials said Wednesday.
But spokesman Abdel-Rahman Busin said preparations were under way for a Sunday ceremony instead.
"They've pretty much taken the city and it's just a few pockets of resistance," he said, adding snipers were still posing a major threat.
