In Benghazi, a boy holds a drawing of Moammar Qaddafi and his son Seif al-Islam being hanged.

Fighting raged around Moammar Qaddafi’s compound in Tripoli on Sunday, and rebels claim to control of much of Libya's capital. But pockets of loyalist resistance remain, and rebels have yet to locate Qaddafi.  The end of his 42 years of rule, however, appears imminent. We get reactions from two Chicagoans from Libya, Tawfik Sharkasi and Sanad Abdalla, and discuss what's next for the North African country. Also, we hear from Berliners who lived through the years of Germany's division -- and from some in the East who found ingenious ways to escape -- in the second and final part of the BBC’s documentary series, The Day the Wall Went Up.
