The international criminal court has issued arrest warrants for Gadhafi, his son and his intelligence chief for crimes against humanity. This may complicate the NATO-led effort to end the fighting which has now gone on for four months. A rebel spokesman said that fighters had been martyred during battles on Sunday and that there has been intense fighting in the mountains for weeks. The opposition forces are attempting to push Gadhafi's troops back toward the capital. Gadhafi's spokesman says that he remains in high spirits and in day to day control of the country. The spokesman said that Gadhafi is prepared to fight, if necessary, street to street and house to house.
