Libyan rebels storm Gaddafi stronghold area

Al Jazeera English: "Libya's rebels have stepped up their assault on the capital Tripoli, storming the Abu Salim neighbourhood as they continue to clear pockets of resistance in what is seen as the last stronghold of Muammar Gaddafi.

Al Jazeera's James Bays, reporting from Tripoli on Friday morning, described the situation as "volatile and fluid", adding that "it's difficult to give a good overview".

"It's quite a hard place to get around because of the checkpoints and because of flash points," he said."
