Reportedly, he appeared at Rixos Hotel, where many foreign correspondents are located. Reports are that Libyan government forces are holding journalists as hostages in what appears to be a Saddam-like tactics of dirty wars. Meanwhile, Gadhafi son said he vows to fight on, despite that rebel forces are advancing and reportedly surrounded the Libyan capital city.
At present, block-to-block fighting is taking place in the streets of Tripoli with neither side evidently dominating. Gunfire and explosions are heard in Bab al-Aziziya, Muammar Gadhafi’s compound in Tripoli but no independent source can confirm what actual state of affairs is and who dominates the city streets.

Seif al-Islam was pictured while somewhere outside smiling and saying the government troops will smash the backbone of rebels. According to Libyan sources, Seif managed to escape from the hands of Libya’s National Transitional Council (NTC), which means somebody had helped him to in doing so. A spokesman for the NTC said rebels do not understand what is going on with Seif being arrested at one moment and traveling the city a few moments later.
