Bab Aziziyah in ruins

Half a year after the fall of Tripoli there is not much left of Gadaffi´s former residence Bab Aziziah. Up to December 2011 it was till possible to go through the (partly) damaged house - see the bedroom, bathrooms, and other details of the old residence. However, during the last few weeks bulldozers seem to have taken down everything.
On Friday mornings the compound is full of people - a market has developed there , selling everything. Otherwise more and more trash ends up in the compound and there is hardly anything left to loot.
The long term plan (or was it just an idea?) is to make an amusement park or at least a public place out of it.
