Libya rebels on Sunday infiltrated the capital Tripoli by sea in a covert operation launched from their western enclave of Misrata, a rebel spokesman said.
An advance party "from Misrata reached Tripoli this dawn by sea and joined Tripoli rebels. They are now fighting alongside them," spokesman Abdullah Melitan told AFP in Misrata, 200 km from Tripoli.
Libyan rebels took control of Misrata in mid-May after repelling forces loyal to Muama Gaddafi who had laid siege to the strategic port city for two months. - AFP
