Update at 4:17 p.m. ET. Earthquake Interrupts DSK Press Conference:
Here's another video of the earthquake interrupting a press conference with Dominique Strauss-Kahn's lawyer:
Libyan rebels stormed Moammar Gadhafi's Tripoli compound Tuesday, after loyalist troops relented. NPR correspondent Lourdes Garcia-Navarro entered the compound after them and tells Robert Siegel about scenes of jubilant anti-Gadhafi fighters ransacking the barracks.
The dramatic reappearance of Seif al-Islam Gadhafi in Tripoli has cast a pall of gloom over the rebel headquarters in Benghazi. The rebels had announced Gadhafi's capture just 24 hours earlier, promising to hand him over to the International Criminal Court. But the mood in Benghazi changed dramatically later in the day when rebel forces stormed and seized Gadhafi's compound in Tripoli.
Robert Siegel talks with Ali Suleiman Aujali, the ambassador of Libya's Transitional National Council to the United States. Aujali was formerly the ambassador of the Gadhafi government to the U.S. He quit, and now represents the Libyan rebels. He says the transitional government will need lots of help setting up a new democracy.
