BBC, London, Monday August 22, 2011 - Heavy fighting is taking place in Tripoli around the compound of embattled Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi after rebels seized control of much of the city on Sunday.

Throughout the night, jubilant crowds remained in central Green Square, previously the scene of nightly pro-Gaddafi demonstrations.

Rebels met little resistance as they swept in from east, south and west.

A rebel spokesman says pro-Gaddafi forces still control 15-20% of Tripoli.

The rebels also said they had captured Col Gaddafi's son Saif al-Islam, but there is no word of the colonel's whereabouts.

Western leaders have welcomed the rebel advance and urged Col Gaddafi to go.

Meanwhile, the International Criminal Court (ICC) has issued arrest warrants for Col Gaddafi, his son Saif al-Islam, and the head of the intelligence service, Abdullah al-Sanussi, for crimes against humanity. ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo said he had been informed of Saif al-Islam's arrest.

Another of Col Gaddafi's sons, Muhammad, was speaking on the phone to al-Jazeera TV when he said the rebels were surrounding his home. Gunfire was heard before the line cut off.

Meanwhile, what are the implications of the fall of the Gaddafi Regime for our Foreign Minister, Mr Rufus Bousquet and his government. 

We will examine these implications in detail in a subsequent article.
