Libyan rebels streaming into heart of Tripoli

Libyan rebels packed in trucks, cars and pickups were streaming on Monday from western Libya towards Green Square in the heart of Tripoli, brandishing arms and honking horns, an AFP reporter witnessed.

In just a short space of time around 40 vehicles sped by, among them a rubbish truck crammed with 25 fighters, the reporter said.

Many of the rebels were waving the flag of the revolution as they appeared to be heading to Green Square to reinforce fighters there who had come under sniper attack by Moamer Kadhafi loyalists.
