Fuel shortage slows Libya rebel advance

As opposition fighters edge ever closer to Tripoli, long supply lines and a chronic lack of petrol is slowing them down.

    Libyan opposition fighters have moved several kilometres out of their mountain stronghold in the west, edging ever closer to Tripoli.  

    But a shortage of fuel is threatening their advance, and also making life difficult for civilians.
