The world was watching Libya yesterday, after rebel forces entered and took control of the capital city of Tripoli Sunday night, attempting to oust Col. Moammar Gadhafi, who is still at large. The streets of Tripoli today were a mix of celebrations and gunfire, as rebels and Gadhafi loyalists faced off. CNN reporter Matthew Chance said last night that he saw Gadhafi's son, Seif al-Islam, at the Rixos hotel in Tripoli. Seif al-Islam said that all of his family, including his father, was in Tripoli, and that the rebel's claims of capturing them were false. Michael Wahid Hanna, fellow at The Century Foundation, talks about who Moammar Gadhafi is, and who is looking for him.
