Libya's U.S. Ambassador On Quitting, Libya's Future

Libya remains in turmoil Tuesday but details are sketchy, as most foreign reporters are being kept out. Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi has responded to protesters demanding his ouster with airstrikes in the capital Tripoli. After Monday's bloodshed, security forces appear to be in control of the capital. But Libyans fleeing the eastern part of the country to neighboring Egypt say demonstrators have taken control in many areas, and several of Libya's diplomats have disowned the regime. Libya's now-former ambassador to the U.S., Ali Aujali, talks with Renee Montagne.
