International journalists were freed from the Rixos Hotel on Wednesday after being held for days by armed men loyal to Moammar Gadhafi.
Libyan rebels struggled to consolidate their gains Wednesday as fighters loyal to Moammar Gadhafi mounted fierce resistance in parts of Tripoli and in a few remaining strongholds across the battered North African nation.
