Libyan opposition forces appeared to be in control of most of Tripoli, the Pentagon said on Tuesday, adding that it was sticking to its assessment that Muammar Gaddafi had not left the country.

Pentagon spokesperson Colonel Dave Lapan added that although the command capabilities of Gaddafi's forces had been diminished, they remained dangerous. He also said the United States was monitoring Libya's chemical weapons sites, amid concern in Congress that those weapons could fall into the wrong hands.  -  Reuters
