Elsewhere, rebel fighters celebrate after overrunning Moammar Kadafi’s compound in Tripoli; police run as opposition supporters break through a barrier during a rally on the 20th anniversary of Ukraine’s independence in Kiev; and demonstrators block a main street during a 48-hour strike in Santiago, Chile.
