Opposition fighters in rebel-held eastern Libya say they are preparing to launch another major offensive against Muammar Gadaffi's regime.
 
They plan to push along the coastal front within days, perhaps even hours, with the aim of recapturing Brega, a strategic oil town that has already changed hands many times.
