LONDON - Libyan rebels have entered the capital Tripoli from the west and are about eight kilometers from the center of the city, Britain's Sky news reported on Sunday, quoting its reporter on the ground.

The reporter, speaking by telephone, said crowds of Libyans had poured into the streets to greet the advancing rebel army, adding that there were no signs of resistance from forces loyal to veteran leader Muammar Gaddafi.
