Muammar Gaddafi's son Saif al Islam said Tuesday morning that his father is still in control of Tripoli, and vowed to fight until the end to protect his country, Israel Radio reported.
"This is our country. We were born here, and we will die here. We are going to win because the people are with us," he said.
Saif al Islam's statements came after reports that NATO forces had been bombing Gaddafi's compound as Libyan rebels continued their push to conquer Tripoli Tuesday morning.
