US President Barack Obama warned that the crisis in Libya is still very fluid.”
There remains a degree of uncertainty and there are still regime elements who pose a threat, he said in a prepared statement.
But this much is clear. The [Moammar] Gadhafi regime is coming to an end and the future of Libya is in the hands of its people.
Obama added that the battle was not over yet.
He also called on Gadhafi to step down and order his remaining loyalists to lay down their arms.
Although it's clear that Gadhafi's rule is over, he still has the opportunity to reduce further bloodshed, Obama said.
Meanwhile, in Libya, it is unclear where Gadhafi is located, but he is believed to be hiding out somewhere in Tripoli, the capitol city that is now largely under the control of rebels.
