MINSK, Aug. 22 (Xinhua) -- The Libyan embassy in Belarus on Monday replaced the Libyan state flag with the flag used by the Libyan rebels.
The crescent and star emblazoned red-black-green flag that became a rallying symbol for the rebels in Libya was raised at the Libyan embassy in the Belarusian capital here.
Officials at the diplomatic mission declined to comment on the move.
The Libyan opposition said Monday that they were now in control of Libyan capital Tripoli, but fighting continued in the city.
According to the Libyan authorities in Tripoli, more than 1,300 people have been killed during the fighting in Tripoli.
