The Rixos in Tripoli was once thought of as one of the finest luxury hotels in the city, but for about 35 foreign nationals monitoring the uprising in Libya, it's become a sort of gilded cage. Journalists from the U.S. and U.K., hotel staff, and even a former U.S. congressman are being kept under lock-and-key by forces loyal to Col. Moammar Gadhafi.
