Saif Al-Islam, son of Muammar Gaddafi, greets supporters in Tripoli August 23, 2011.

As rebel forces consolidated their control over Tripoli amid signs of disorganization within the ranks, the manhunt continued Monday for Col. Moammar Gadhafi, who was said by his son to be alive and well.
Three of Gadhafi's sons — Seif al-Islam Gadhafi, Mohammed Gadhafi and Saadi Gadhafi — were reported to have been captured by the rebels, but Seif later appeared before reporters at a Tripoli hotel, and Al Jazeera reported that Mohammed managed to escape.

Thomas Erdbrink, bureau chief of The Washington Post in Tehran, reports live from Zawiya, Libya on the latest news on the whereabouts of Saif al-Islam, Moammar Gadhafi's son, and the strength remaining in Gadhafi's loyalists.
