BBC news with Iain Purdon.

Libyan rebels are still fighting troops loyal to colonel Gaddafi for control of Tripoli. The rebels say they've taken of most of the capital but are facing stiff resistence in some areas. Matthew Price is in Tripoli.

Tripoli today is a tail of two cities, in one jubilant opposition supporters believe they are finally witnessing the end of colonel Gaddafi. Gunmen control the streets of their neighbourhoods. Pro-Gaddafi forces are nowhere to be seen. The other Tripoli is one of anxiety of fear of heavy weapons and explosions. The battle for the city is not over. From colonel Gaddafi's compounds, smoke can be seen rising as the two sides fight for control there. And here around the hotel where foreign journalists have stayed ever since this uprising began, Gaddafi's supporters control the streets. The premature celebrations of last night seemed not to have been repeated during the day, instead many staying in doors, wondering how long the fight for Tripoli will last.

Colonel Gaddafi's whereabouts remained unknown. The head of the rebel National Transitional Council Mustafa Abdul-Jalil says the real moment of victory will come when the Libyan leader is captured. From Bengazi, Paul Wood reports.

In the early hours of the morning, jubilant crowds in Bengazi celebrated the passing of colonel Gaddafi's rule with volleys of automatic fire. But later in the day hearing the birth place of revolution there was a more sobre warning of the dangers posed by the victory unfolding in the capital. The leader of the National Tansitional Vouncil Mustafa Abdul-Jalil said he was worried there could be revenge attacks. If military commanders ignored him and carried out reprisals, he said, he would resign,  a threat which gave a glimpse of the tensions within a movement now on the brink of forming a new government.

President Obama has praised the Libyan people for what he called "their extraordinary sacrifice in defying the Gaddafi regime and fighting to overthrow it."

"Your courage and character have been unbreakable in the face of the tyrant. An ocean divides us, but we are joined in the human longing, for freedom, for justice and for dignity. . Your revolution is your own, and your sacrifices have been extraordinary. Now the Libya you deserve is within your reach. Going forward we will stay in close coordination with that TNC to support that outcome."

In another reaction the UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon warned that all United Nations members have a duty to comply with the International Criminal Court which has issued arrest warrants against colonel Gaddafi, his son Saif Al-Islam and his intelligence team .

The International Organization for Migration says it has sent a trip to Tripoli to evacuate migrants. It can carry 300 passengers and it's expected to arrive on Tuesday.

And initially the case was thought to be extremely strong but it later over the weeks seemed to fall apart as there were serious questions over the credibility of the woman over the alleged victim and the story that she gave to the prosecutors and also in later media appearances over the weeks about exactly what happens and when.
