A quotation from VOA news:
"Justice Minister Marou Amadou says it is an explosive situation as members of the ousted Gadhafi government flee fighters backing Libya's interim ruling council. "
As far as I understand "flee" should be followed by a place,as definition of flee from Longman says "to leave somewhere very quickly, in order to escape from danger:", but here "flee" is followed by "fighters",not a a place, how to understand it?
You can flee (from) a person or place.
