It's a busy day in Washington for the Libyan ambassador as rebel forces in Tripoli close in on long-time dictator Moamar Gadhafi.
Libyan Ambassador Ali Aujali says he's headed to the U.S. Treasury Department this afternoon. He says he's going to ask them to unfreeze Gadhafi’s assets and turn them into the official rebel council. Without these assets, the council wouldn’t be able to provide basic services to their people.
He says the main priority right now is finding the Libyan ruler and capturing him. He also says he doesn’t think Gadhafi will surrender.
Aujali was Gadhafi's ambassador to the U.S. for many years, but he switched allegiances to the rebel cause shortly after the hostilities began this spring.
