Libya Ready to Fall?

Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi's regime "showed more signs of crumbling as dozens were reportedly killed in the capital and Gaddafi's son and heir-apparent declared in a televised speech that the North African nation could fall into anarchy if his father was ousted," the Washington Post reports.

"The six-day-old uprising had reached the capital, Tripoli, with reports of buildings being set ablaze, looting in some neighborhoods, and military helicopters shooting at protesters on the ground."

New York Times: "The revolt shaking Libya is the latest and most violent turn in a rebellion across the Arab world that seemed unthinkable just two months ago and that has already toppled autocrats in Egypt and Tunisia."
