NATO Drops Leaflets in Tripoli

The world has been captivated as news broke that Libyan rebel forces have overtaken Moammar Gadhafi's fortress-like compound in Tripoli following fierce street battles against forces loyal to the longtime leader. To help with the surge, NATO has been dropping leaflets in the area of Tripoli. The majority of the leaflets were intended to encourage pro-Gaddafi soldiers to lay down their weapons and to join the Libyan rebels and the wider Libyan people.
