Heavily armed Gaddafi loyalists are refusing to let journalists leave Rixos hotel in Tripoli.

Around 40 foreigners – most of them journalists – are trapped inside the Rixos hotel in Tripoli.

They are being guarded by gunmen loyal to Muammar Gaddafi and are unable to leave the hotel to cover the latest events.
