Libya rebel council says to move to Tripoli this week

TUNIS (Reuters) - Libya's rebel National Transitional Council will move its headquarters to the capital Tripoli from it eastern stronghold of Benghazi within two days, a military spokesman, Ahmed Bani, told al Jazeera television on Tuesday.

Rebels stormed Muammar Gaddafi's compound in the capital earlier in the day but the veteran leader's whereabouts remained unclear.
