Rebels No More

Now that they've been recognized as the government, it looks like Libya's rebels are rebels no more.

The African Union (AU) has recognised Libya's interim leaders the National Transitional Council (NTC) as the country's de facto government.

It came as US President Barack Obama said after meeting NTC chairman Mustafa Abdul Jalil that his ambassador was to re-open an embassy in Tripoli.

Meanwhile, Col Muammar Gaddafi warned opponents Nato support would not last.

And a revolutionary commander has suggested the deposed leader's forces are still recruiting mercenaries.
