Colonel Gaddafi ON THE RUN: 'Mad Dog of the Middle East' Reportedly Flees Tripoli...

Libya's second city Benghazi
appears lost as troops retreat

Daily Mail (UK)-
Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi is believed to have fled the capital Tripoli after anti-government demonstrators breached the state television building and set government property alight.

Protesters appear to have gained a foothold in Tripoli as banks and government buildings were looted while demonstrators have claimed they have taken control of the second city Benghazi.

It is thought up to 400 people may have died in the unrest with dozens more reported killed in Tripoli overnight as protests reached the capital for the first time and army units were said to have defected to the opposition.

Pressure is building on the deranged terrorist nut Reagan famously called "the mad dog of the Middle East": with reports of 350+ dead, the military retreating to their compounds, mystery Libyan jets landing in Malta, and today the Justice Minister -for one- resigning in protest of Gaddafi's murderous hand.
