Qaddafi's whereabouts are still unknown; of his purportedly captured sons, Saif appeared at the Rixos Hotel yesterday--it was unclear whether he escaped or was never captured--and Mohammed escaped from house arrest.

- Turkey has launched more raids into Northern Iraq, killing some 100 members of the PKK.
- "Cattle raids" between rival tribes in South Sudan have resulted in at least 600 deaths, according to the UN.
- The New York prosecutor in the Strauss-Kahn case has asked the judge to dismiss the case.
