ISLAMABAD: The Libyan Embassy in Pakistan has raised the rebel flag above its compound in Islamabad following the fall of Moammar Qadhafi's 42-year autocratic regime.

The red, black and green flag emblazoned with a white crescent and star fluttered in the breeze Thursday under overcast skies. The flag used under Qadhafi was solid green.

Libyan officials could not be reached for comment on the change.

Libyan diplomats abroad have been pledging allegiance to the rebels gradually after the rebellion erupted nearly six months ago, but defections surged this week as rebels entered Tripoli in a stunning breakthrough.
