Ousted Libyan leader has been on the run since rebels took over Tripoli last month, reports conflicting about his exact location.
Libyan rebels are surrounding the toppled leader Muammar Gadhafi, and it is only a matter of time until he is captured or killed, the spokesman for the rebels’ military council in Tripoli, Anis Sharif, said Wednesday.
He did not disclose Gadhafi’s whereabouts, but said he was still in Libya.
Sharif was quoted by the pro-rebel Free Libya TV as saying that Gadhafi had been tracked using high technology and human intelligence.
“Gadhafi is trapped in a 60-kilometer radius area surrounded by forces of the (rebels’) Transitional National Council,” he said.
