Rebels Capture Gaddafi Son

Representatives for Libya's rebel army told several news outlets Sunday evening that they have captured Saif Gaddafi at the Rixos Hotel in Tripoli, and Al Jazeera reports that another son, Muhammad Gaddafi, has surrendered. "Tonight it's over," the spokesman said. The rebels pushed into central Tripoli Sunday afternoon after a climactic few hours of breaking through the city's security perimeters. Gaddafi said he would "fight until the last drop of blood," but there has been little sign of resistance to the rebel advance.
