As Libyan rebels continue advancing on the capital Tripoli, Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, who has been struggling to stay in power since March, is reported to be "gravely ill."
The news comes from unnamed sources quoted by the Asharq al-Awasat newspaper. No further details on the colonel’s medical condition is said to be available, though the rebel Transitional National Council does refer to medical reports allegedly confirming that Gaddafi has had a serious illness.
"Colonel Gaddafi's conditions are an immediate cease-fire and the withdrawal of NATO forces," the Itar-Tass news agency quoted an unnamed source in Libya’s military as saying. "Two Airbus aircraft from South Africa landed at Tripoli International Airport. One of them included a delegation, while the second was empty of passengers."
