ALGIERS (Reuters) - The rebel flag was flying on Monday over the Libyan embassy in neighboring Algeria, a mission that had until now been loyal to Muammar Gaddafi.

A Reuters reporter outside the embassy said she could see the red, green and black flag of the rebel movement flying over the building, with a black flag alongside it. An embassy worker declined to comment.
