Libya Rebels Seek to Preempt a Gadhafi Retaliation

Ad Feedback

Libyan rebels are trying to capture Moammar Ghadafi before he's able to mount a revenge campaign for the overthrow of his regime. 

"Gadhafi is still capable of doing something awful in the last moments," rebel leader Abdul-Jalil told NATO officials earlier Monday in Qatar.

The rebels are also demanding that the dictator's wife and three children, who fled to Algeria Monday, be returned to the North African nation to face trial. 

"We are determined to arrest and try the whole Gadhafi family, including Gadhafi himself," Mahmoud Shammam, information minister in the rebels' interim government.

"We'd like to see those people coming back to Libya," he said.

Shammam added that Algeria's decision to offer asylum to Gadhafi's family was an "aggressive act against the Libyan people's wish." 

Meanwhile, the Obama administration said there is no indication Gadhafi himself has left Libya.

NATO military advisers are on the ground in the country, using electronic intelligence to aid the rebels in their search for the dictator.  

A Libyan businessman has reportedly offered a $2 million reward for his capture.
