Libyan revolution takes Tripoli by storm

In a swift move yesterday, Libyan rebel forces took over Tripoli Square and detained two of Moammar Qaddafi’s sons, leaving rebels confident that the revolution is nearing a victory, and the end of Qaddafi’s rule is imminent.

Though CNN reports show some fighters were told that army forces were coming their way, Qaddafi is nowhere in sight and the city seems to remain in the power of revolution leaders as of right now. This will mark the end of four decades of the oppressive dictatorship.

While the future for Libya is unknown, ideas on how to move forward are already being discussed. We’ll keep you posted as things develop.

    How long did it take you to find that photo? I couldn’t find any images of women out in the street celebrating.
