Janey now confirmed that Ghaddafi is handing out weapons to his suppporters...

Are there any news about the armed citizens from neighbour districts, cities, army, etc?

Are they still waiting for a no-fly zone, so that there is a lower risk of having their vehicles bombed&destroyed?

before they risk the march to Bab al aziziya ?

Word on the street is that the no fly zone will be able to be in force before the end of the day once the last evacuation flights are out.

Morning everyone. Slept about five hours, compelled to come back here and find out what is going on. My prayers for all the suffering people of Libya.

nobody really knows. They are just asking people to arrive at the airport from whichever country. Estimates range from 2-6000

AFP wire talking about some of the statements coming from Gadaffi Duck in the past and questioning his sanity.

Apparently, he issued a statement to the Arab League saying without a doubt that Shakespeare was an Arab.

He also proclaimed that America was really founded by the Arabs, when the Emir Ka settled there and that is where the name comes from!

Not oil fields: seaport and refinery.
Marsa el-Brega or Marsā al-Burayqah, is situated in Libya on the Gulf of Sirte.

Khameez/ Khamees/ Khamiss/ Kamissi/ etc spellings = Gaddafi "praetorian guards" -- most loyal -- lived lives of special favor - much like Saddam's Republican Guards = most feared and hated.

Have to go to work soon, alas. Have been listening to Malta's air traffic control at www.liveatc.net and watching aircraft that are on radar at www.liveradar24.com.

There was a French Air Force Airbus A340 heading south for east Tunisia/west Libya. It has now disappeared from the online radar that I can see - just means it was descending, probably.

JAT Airways also with a flight possibly heading for Tripoli.

Unfortunately, Tripoli's air traffic control is not online, as far as I can tell.

This page has today's Tripoli scheduled arrivals: http://www.flightstats.com/go/FlightStatus/flightStatusByAirport.do?airportCode=TIP&airportQueryType=1

This sort of nonsensical rapidfire word association ( 'Emir Ka' = 'America') -- the belief that concepts, ideas, or words themselves are connected simply because they sound the same is extremely typical -- almost diagnostic -- of schizophrenia.

thanks BB for clearing up the arabic tweet from LibyaNFSL about khamis troops & brega refinery!

there were reports few days ago, that they are heading east, but was not clear whether to a city, or oilfields/refinery or something like that

yes... the one from norway.. I read that he is vienna.. (or at least, was in vienna Wink )

and also on the thread from yesterday.. I was pretty sure that those infos are wrong, because they were in vienna last week.. but the newspaper article came out thursday..

I seriously doubt that they again are in vienna, in the same hotel..
