Libya: Bulldozers demolish Gaddafi compound

Help

Bulldozers have begun demolishing the fortress-like Bab al-Aziziya compound of deposed Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in the capital Tripoli.

Interim leaders said it was time "to tear down the symbol of tyranny".

For days, anti-Gaddafi fighters have tried to crush the last pockets of resistance in Gaddafi's home town, Sirte.
