Italy: Gadhafi likely fled Tripoli, not Libya

The Italian foreign minister says Moammar Gadhafi may have fled Tripoli but is likely still in Libya.
Franco Frattini said Friday that "international pressure has likely provoked the decision by Gadhafi to seek refuge in a safe place."
Frattini said he leans toward the possibility that Gadhafi may have sought "escape from Tripoli, not escape from Libya." He noted "Libya is a big country, with desert areas."
Gadhafi is expected to be among three Libyan officials targeted by arrest warrants to be issued Monday by the International Criminal Court.
