"National Transitional Council fighters claimed Monday to have captured the main hospital in Bani Walid, one of former Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi’s last bases of support. NTC forces continued shelling of Sirte while ground troops pushed to the center of the city. Meanwhile, the United Kingdom re-opened its Tripoli embassy and a pro-Gaddafi TV channel confirmed the death of Gaddafi’s son Khamis, rumored since August." (10/17/11)
