    The future of Libya appears to be on a knife edge. The military is taking on the people in the streets of the capital, Tripoli, and high-level diplomats are deserting the government of Muammar Gaddafi.

    More than a week since protests against his regime began, Gaddafi himself made an appearance on national TV to dispel rumours that he had left the country.
