The Libyan capital appears to be a lonely outpost for supporters of Muammar Gaddafi as the anti-Gaddafi camp gains control of more cities.
The areas reported to be now under control of anti-government forces include Az-Zawiya, Misurata, Benghazi and Al Baida.
According to reports, the country's second most important military airport, not far from Benghazi, has fallen to the protesters.
Meanwhile, military personnel say they have joined the people's revolution, and private jets and civilian aircraft at the Al Banin airport were seen grounded.
With more on the opposition's growing area of control, Al Jazeera's Jacky Rowland reports from the eastern city of Benghazi.
