Libya's toppled leader Muammar Gaddafi is sheltering on the outskirts of his hometown, Sirte, an aide to the National Transitional Council's military leader said on Monday.
"We have found out that Gaddafi is now several kilometers southwards of Sirte. He is constantly moving," Anis Sharif said.
He also said that the colonel was probably looking for a corridor to escape to Sabha, one of the few Libyan cities controlled by pro-Gaddafi forces.
"Death, suicide or a trial for Gaddafi - is a matter of time. And he's got little time left," Sharif said.
On Saturday the chairman of the rebel council, Mustafa Abdel Jalil gave a one-week ultimatum to Gaddafi loyalists to leave the cities of Sirte, Sabha and Bani Walid. The ultimatum expires on September 10.
Earlier on Monday rebels said that Gaddafi could be in the besieged city of Bani Walid.

The rebel then in charge of monitoring our boat checked our identification repeatedly over four hours insisting that no Russians, Serbians or Ukrainians would be allowed to leave. Neither would a Cuban and Ecuadorian citizen. Their countries relations had been too good with Muammar Gaddafi during the crisis.
Finally at about midnight, we were all allowed on, except for one Russian man.

Military exercises are held in order to prevent a war rather than prepare for one. If a potential enemy knows and sees that the Russian Army is constantly improving its skills and adopting state-of-the-art combat equipment and combat support systems he will hardly risk aggression against these Armed Forces and the country they defend.
