Qaddafi loyalists get ultimatum
The National Transition Council of Libya has given loyalists to Libyan dictator Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi until Saturday to surrender to rebel forces and transfer control of Qaddafi's hometown, Sirte.
If loyalists fail to heed the ultimatum, rebel forces amassing outside of the town plan to forcefully take control.
The ultimatum was issued today, a little over a week after rebels took control of Tripoli, the capital of Libya. Gaining Tripoli was a decisive strategic gain for the rebels after months of fighting to out the country's autocratic leader of 42 years.
Members of Qaddafi's family -- including his daughter -- were admitted to Algeria yesterday based on "humanitarian grounds."
The whereabouts of Qaddafi is unknown.
