Reports: Gadhafi Stronghold Has Fallen; His Status Uncertain
Libyan fighters say they have taken over Sirte, the hometown of ousted leader Moammar Gadhafi.
And there are unconfirmed reports that he has been captured. Reuters writes that Gadhafi:
"Has been captured and wounded in both legs, National Transitional Council official Abdel Majid said on Thursday."
Libyan TV is also reporting that news, al-Jazeera says.
NPR and other news outlets are working to independently confirm the news about Gadhafi. The State Department says it cannot confirm the report of his capture. We'll be updating this post as the story develops.
