(TRIPOLI) Libyan rebels have continued to secure the capital of Tripoli, but fighting has continued around Sirte, the hometown of Colonel Gadhafi.
A spokesman for Gadhafi says the Colonel is ready to begin talks concerning the transfer power. The talks would be led by Gadhafi’s son Saadi.
The Arab League has meanwhile given its backing to the National Transitional Council.
Gadhafi has been in hiding since rebels took over Tripoli last week.
