No evidence Gaddafi has left Libya: White House

The White House said the US was concerned that Gaddafi`s arms could fall into the wrong hands.



Vineyard Haven: The White
House said there`s no evidence to indicate Muammar Gaddafi has
left Libya, as scattered battles flare across Tripoli.

Briefing reporters traveling with President Barack Obama
on vacation, spokesman Josh Earnest also said today officials
are closely monitoring the status of Gaddafi`s weapons
stockpiles amid concerns that his huge caches of arms could
fall into the wrong hands.

With millions spent from the US involvement in Libya
even without troops on the ground, Earnest emphasizes that the
US has a tangible interest in standing with the Libyan
people as they attempt a transition to democracy.

He declines to give a timeline for U.S. involvement in
the African nation, while saying there are difficult days,
months and years ahead.

Earnest said Obama was briefed today morning on the
situation.
