Are there signs of possible divisions among the Libyans and can they be stopped?

Libya's rebels have made more gains, but Muammar Gaddafi's loyalists are continuing their resistance in the Libyan capital and other parts of the country. Fighters on both sides have been accused of taking part in mass executions following the discovery of scores of bodies across Tripoli.

The United Nations has called on all sides in the Libyan conflict to take steps to ensure there are no acts of violence and revenge. Is Libya about to witness spiraling revenge attacks? Are these signs of possible divisions among the Libyans? Can they be stopped?  

Inside Story discusses with guests: Ashur Shamis, a Libyan journalist and founding member of the now defunct National Front for the Salvation of Libya; Claudio Cordone, the senior director of Amnesty International; and James Bays, an Al Jazeera English correspondent in Libya.
