Events in Libya are happening fast and furious. From AP:

CAIRO – Deep cracks opened in Moammar Gadhafi’s regime Monday, with Libyan government officials at home and abroad resigning, air force pilots defecting and a major government building ablaze after clashes in the capital of Tripoli. Protesters called for another night of defiance against the Arab world’s longest-serving leader despite a crackdown.

Security forces appeared to be preparing a major assault in Tripoli to try to crush unrest that has swept eastern parts of the country — leaving the second-largest city of Benghazi in protesters’ control — and was now overwhelming the capital of 2 million people.

The BBC and Al Jazeera are both offering frequent coverage live on the web:
