A German merchant ship made its way into the harbor of Tripoli not long ago and was boarded by a troop of police who wanted to know if the ship was carrying weapons. Hoping for a laugh, the sea captain responded with a dirty joke. But the Libyans weren't smiling, and the captain spent a week in jail, released only after the intervention of the German Embassy.

Moammar Kadafi, watching a parade of tanks rumble past, marked 25 years in power Thursday with slogans condemning the United States and the U.N. sanctions against Libya. Kadafi, 52, waved and clasped his hands above his head as soldiers from the Green Revolutionary Army chanted about his "Fatah" revolution, meaning the "opening" in Arabic. While the parade crowd cheered Kadafi, some complained that the U.N. ban on flights into and out of Libya was making life difficult.

Chunks of twisted ceiling panels litter the entrance hall in what was once Libya's grandest villa. Paintings tilt crazily above overturned sofas. Upstairs, a child's bloodstained mattress is encased in a glass shroud.

WASHINGTON - President Obama's consideration of Chuck Hagel to be Defense secretary has set off an outcry of criticism that could force a second damaging White House retreat over a Cabinet pick. Even as Obama was nominating Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) as secretary of State on Friday, the possible selection of Hagel, a Republican who served two terms as a U.S. senator from Nebraska, drew intensifying crossfire from influential pro-Israel groups, Iran hawks and the gay rights lobby.
