In Tripoli, they fired into the air -- a salute to a senior military commander killed in Bani Walid. National Transitional Council commander Daou al Salhine and eight others were killed in a rocket attack. Salhine led forces into the center of the stronghold on Saturday, coming under heavy fire. Poor coordination on the frontlines is hampering NTC efforts to secure the Gaddafi stronghold. A month after they captured Tripoli, NTC forces are still battling pockets of resistance and trying to figure out just where the Gaddafi is hiding. Even on the run, the fallen leader looms large in the country he ruled for more than 40 years. Deborah Gembara, Reuters.
