Libya’s rebels have announced an enormous new bounty on their dictator’s head. Igor Kossov on how the $1.6 million claim could be the final straw for a regime that is barely standing. Plus, more updates.
The rebel National Transitional Council in Libya sees the death or capture of Muammar Gaddafi as the only true victory and has upped the stakes to bring it closer.
Speaking from headquarters in Benghazi, the head of the NTC, Mohamed Abdel Jalil, said that whoever captures Gaddafi will receive a 2 million dinar reward (about $1.6 million) raised by Benghazi businessmen. He also said that anyone in Gaddafi’s inner circle who kills or captures the boss for the rebels will be granted full amnesty. The rebels’ access to the cash has not been verified.
Journalists Freed From Tripoli Hotel

It appears the standoff at the Rixos hotel is at an end. Journalists say they have been freed after being held for days by soldiers loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. Several of the journalists held there say they have left the hotel in a car. About 35 journalists and a former U.S. congressman were being held at the hotel, which served as a hub for correspondents during the war. As rebels gained control of Tripoli, troops loyal to Gaddafi held on to Rixos and refused to let the journalists there leave the building.
