The whereabouts of Muammar Gaddafi's family remains unknown, but their abandoned homes in the capital, Tripoli, are exposing their luxurious lifestyle.

An indoor pool in the house of Gaddafi's daughter Aisha has been taken advantage of by curious rebels and their families.

Tripoli residents are also taking tours of the embattled leader's compound, evidence of his extravagance available for all to see.
