TRIPOLI - The voice of Muammar Gaddafi boomed out from his hiding place on Thursday, denying he had fled Libya and cursing as rats and stray dogs those whose efforts to start governing in his place are being frustrated by his die-hard followers.

The man running that interim government, in Tripoli for the first time since its motley forces seized the capital, hailed a great victory. But he told his rebel allies that "the tyrant" was not yet finished and warned against the kind of factional in-fighting which some see as growing threat to the new Libya.

"This is a stage where we have to unify and be together," said interim prime minister Mahmoud Jibril, who noted Gaddafi still had bastions of support, two weeks after Tripoli fell. "Once the battle is finished ... the political game can start."
