Libyan military aircraft piloted by officers loyal to the embattled leader of the country have bombed targets in the rebel-held oil town of Ras Lanuf.

The attacks are the latest in a series of counteroffensives by Muammar Gaddafi's military against anti-government forces, which also include members of the military who refuse to recognise Gaddafi's authority.
