He may be faced by an ongoing rebellion, an increasingly destructive NATO bombing campaign and world-wide condemnation - but Colonel Gaddafi has vowed he'll stay in Libya to the bitter end. His remarks came over a game of chess with the visiting President of the World Chess Federation, Kirsan Ilyumzhinov. After the event - which was broadcast on state TV - the chessmaster expressed his shock at the scale of destruction in the capital - Tripoli. Nevertheless, NATO has once again declared its intent to expand military operations in the country. It follows reports of fierce fighting during which Libyan government forces wrested control from the rebels, of the city of Zawiya - just 30 kilometres from the capital.
