Letter from the editor: Frontline reporting

Sky’s Alex Crawford is deservedly winning many plaudits for her live on-the-spot reporting of the Libyan rebels’ triumphant march into the heart of Tripoli on Sunday night.

'He called us rats, but he is the one hiding. We shall hang them all together. . .'

The machine-gun fire cut across the patriotic songs belting out of the ghetto-blaster, long raking bursts sending the rebel fighters scrambling for cover.

Heavy fighting in tyranny's last stand

How a long, hard struggle suddenly raced to a climax

In January 1942, the tanks of Montgomery's Eighth Army rolled on to the streets of Tripoli. They arrived two days early, unopposed. On Sunday night, Libya's rebels entered the same city – without tanks, but also uncontested and even further ahead of schedule. Their convoys drove easily through a defensive perimeter where heavily armed units of the Khamis Brigade, commanded by one of Muammar Gaddafi's sons, should have been lobbing rockets. Others walked into the brigade's barracks, seizing a store of arms. And then, firing scarcely a shot in anger, crowds entered Green Square and raised the old monarchy's flag.

Leading article: A hard-won revolution that will reverberate far and wide

No one who saw the pictures of the first opposition convoy reaching Tripoli's Green Square in the early hours of yesterday morning can be in any doubt as to the warmth of the reception or the sheer joy of an arrival that will surely become the emblem of Libya's liberation. As bystanders along the route replaced Gaddafi-era flags with opposition banners and volleys of celebratory shots rang out, it was tempting to believe the battle for Tripoli was already won.

Patrick Cockburn: No one doubts that Gaddafi has lost. The question is: who has won?
