Seif al-Islam, fugitive son of fallen Libyan dictator Moamer Kadhafi, said Wednesday in an audio tape on an Arabic-language channel that he was still in Tripoli and the fight against rebels goes on.
"I am talking to you from a suburb of Tripoli," he told the Damascus-based Al-Rai television station. "We want to reassure the Libyan people that we are still here. The resistance continues and victory is near."

Al-Rai 10 days ago broadcast messages from his father, after Libyan state television fell into rebel hands.
"Every Libyan is Moamer Kadhafi, every Libyan is Seif al-Islam... Wherever you find yourself face to face with the enemy, fight him," Seif al-Islam said in Wednesday's audio message.
His father is also on the run, but rebel leaders say they are sure he is still in Libya and that they are closing in on him.
East of Tripoli on Wednesday, rebels clashed sporadically with loyalists on the road from Zliten to Bani Walid, where the insurgents believe Kadhafi could be hiding.
