It has been a week since coalition countries began their bombing campaign to impose restrictions on Libya's government.

That air raid has helped opposition fighters retake the strategic town of Ajdabiya, and they are also claiming the oil town of Brega.

It is yet another major milestone in the battle for Libya.

Al Jazeera's James Bays reports from Ajdabiya on the advance of the pro-democracy forces.
