(Reuters) – Rebel fighters streamed into Tripoli as Muammar Gaddafi’s forces collapsed and crowds took to the streets to celebrate, tearing down posters of the Libyan leader.

A convoy of rebels entered a western neighborhood of the city, firing their weapons into the air. Rebels said the whole of the city was under their control except Gaddafi’s Bab Al-Aziziya-Jazeera stronghold, according to al-Jazeera Television.

Gaddafi made two audio addresses over state television calling on Libyans to fight off the rebels.

“I am afraid if we don’t act, they will burn Tripoli,” he said. “There will be no more water, food, electricity or freedom.”

Gaddafi, a colorful and often brutal autocrat who has ruled Libya for over 40 years, said he was breaking out weapons stores to arm the population. His spokesman, Moussa Ibrahim, predicted a violent reckoning by the rebels.

“A massacre will be committed inside Tripoli if one side wins now, because the rebels have come with such hatred, such vendetta…Even if the leader leaves or steps down now, there will be a massacre.”

NATO, which has backed the rebels with a bombing campaign, said the transition of power in Libya must be peaceful.

After a six-month civil war, the fall of Tripoli came quickly, with a carefully orchestrated uprising launched on Saturday night to coincide with the advance of rebel troops on three fronts. Fighting broke out after the call to prayer from the minarets of the mosques.

Rebel National Transitional Council Coordinator Adel Dabbechi confirmed that Gaddafi’s younger son Saif Al-Islam had been captured. His eldest son Mohammed Al-Gaddafi had surrendered to rebel forces, he told Reuters.

Only five months ago Gaddafi’s forces were set to crush the rebel stronghold of Benghazi, the leader warning in a television address that there would be “no mercy, no pity” for his opponents. His forces, he said, would hunt them down “district to district, street to street, house to house, room to room.”…

Libya’s rebel fighters have been making advances in the west of the country in their push towards Tripoli.

Dozens of civilians have fled the Libyan capital, saying living conditions in the city have been deteriorating.

They say food and fuel are in short supply and electricity has been erratic.

Many of them they say it is only a matter of time before the government of Muammar Gaddafi falls from within.

Reports coming in that Gaddafi has been shot dead, page 1

RT @MalikAlAbdeh: CONFIRMED: Mu’amar #Gaddafi, leader of #Libya for 42 years, has been shot DEAD in vicinity of Rixos Hotel in #Tripoli. #FF

Hopefully it’s true. 

Malik Al Abdeh tweet 

CONFIRMED: Mu’amar #Gaddafi, leader of #Libya for 42 years, has been shot DEAD in vicinity of Rixos Hotel in #Tripoli. #FF

Source is MalikAlAbdeh, Chief Editor of the Syrian pro-democracy satellite channel Barada TV… so it’s probably credible. 

Good for the Libyan people. 

From BBC quoting Al-Jazeera 

Al-Jazeera TV is reporting that Col Muammar Gaddafi’s personal security team have surrendered and disarmed.

If Gaddafi personal security team have surrendered, it’s very possible Gaddafi is now dead… 

#Libya #tripoli Libyan TV just stopped broadcasting.

The rebels are marching on Tripoli… people are cheering them as heroes… Gaddafi, if he’s not already dead, has mere hours to live. 

MalikAlAbdeh: First to tweet this from on-ground sources and I can confirm: #GADDAFI IS DEAD. He was shot dead by #FF in #Tripoli. #Libya

+1 

People cheering on Al-Jazeera… he might be dead for real… other rumor that he has fled Libya… 

Dead or gone… or hiding…
