In Libya, Moammar Gadhafi's forces are still holding on to power in the capital city of Tripoli. In an interview yesterday, Gadhafi told ABC News that his people love him and would die for him. Those remarks were described this morning as "delusional" by US Ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, Meanwhile, 70,000 Libyan refugees have crossed the border into Egypt. The military has been in power for just over two weeks since Hosni Mubarak stepped down. Protester Mosa'ab Elshamy is a pharmacy student in Cairo. We last spoke the day before Mubarak left office. He tells us what changes still need to be made in Egypt.
