The three, holding their heads in hands, were squatting at the open-top rare of the pickup under the escort of a couple of NTC fighters. They were fisted by many fighters along the street as the car went outside the city.

A NTC fighter Mohamed Elkhoja told Xinhua reporter on the scene that they have arrested 25 pro-Gaddafi soldiers on Sunday, while only small pockets of them are still making a gambling fight.

Meanwhile, another fighter, with one AK-47 in each of his hand, said the city has been "almost all controlled" by the " revolutionary fighters" as of early Monday, after they succeeded in gathering in the city center from three sides the previous day and raising the NTC's flags in the town.

But there are still spots of confrontation in the city, as some Gaddafi loyalists on Sunday managed to stand up to a staunch NTC attack which aimed to conclude the siege, admitted the fighter, who identifies himself as Hakim.
