Muammar Gaddafi Makes Plans to Flee Libya as Rebels Close in on Tripoli

FOX News reports that Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi is making plans to leave the country. Rebel forces are advancing on the capital from the west and south and are now fighting for the strategic city of Zawiyah, only 30 miles from the capital.

UPDATE: CNN reports that contrary to rebel claims, Gaddafi has no plans to move himself or his family out of Libya. It is possible that he intends to make a last stand in Tripoli.
