I am monitoring a sudden surge of tweets indicating that something unusual is taking place in Tripoli right now. One interesting tweet is claiming that Musa Ibrahim, the Foreign Ministry spokesman has quit his post: 1. derekd66 "@elpasolibre: #Tripoli: The official spokeman for the Foriegn Ministry, Musa Ibrahim, has left the regime. #Libya #feb17" And as if that is not enough, Reuters is reporting an uprising against Gaddafi in Tripoli suburbs: 2. (Reuters TUNIS | Mon May 9, 2011 4:33pm EDT) - Libyan rebels are leading an uprising in the suburbs of Tripoli after being supplied with light weapons by defecting security service officers, an opposition newspaper said on Monday. The story quoted witnesses who said a full-scale uprising against the rule of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was taking place in the suburbs of Tripoli. It said protesters were preparing to head toward the city center. In an update: 3. 11:05pm: Al-Jazeera Arabic reports that the rebels have raised the Independence flag above Mitiga Air Force Base in Tripoli. The above, if true, definitely add a new twist to the ongoing Libyan crisis!
