Libya's revolutionary forces seized a convention center Sunday that had served as a key base for fighters loyal to Col. Moammar Gadhafi in the fugitive leader's hometown as they squeezed remaining regime loyalists in the besieged coastal city.
The chief of Libya's former rebels arrived in Tripoli on Saturday, greeted by a boisterous red carpet ceremony meant to show he's taking charge of the interim government replacing the ousted regime of Moammar Gadhafi.
Libyan rebel leaders asked NATO on Monday to keep up pressure on elements of Col. Moammar Gadhafi's regime and to protect those struggling to restore electricity and water to the battle-scarred capital of Tripoli.
Col. Moammar Gadhafi's wife and three of his children fled Libya to neighboring Algeria on Monday, firm evidence that the longtime leader has lost his grip on the country.
Libya's rebels will agree to a cease-fire if Moammar Gadhafi pulls his military forces out of cities and allows peaceful protests against his regime, an opposition leader said Friday.
"I want to assure the Libyan people that everything is under control," he said Sunday.
Libya's interim leader, Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, said his National Transitional Council brought together elders from the feuding areas - the coastal city of Zawiya and the nearby tribal lands of Warshefana - over the weekend and that the dispute has been resolved.
