Dozens of foreign journalists trapped in one of Tripoli's most glittering hotels for five days walked free Wednesday, ending what some were beginning to fear was a hostage situation.
CNN Senior International Correspondent Matthew Chance called the experience a "nightmare" and "very frightening" after he got out.
He said the journalists had been held "by crazy gunmen" waving Gadhafi flags and brandishing automatic weapons.
Meanwhile, embattled pro-Moammar Gadhafi forces toughed it out on Wednesday, striking back at Libyan rebels in several volatile pockets across Tripoli. Gadhafi's whereabouts remain unknown.
