Gaddafi forces reverse rebels’ advances as they recapture key towns and now threaten Benghazi, an opposition stronghold.
Muammar Gaddafi appears to be getting an upper hand in Libya, at least militarily, as his forces push the rebels further to the east.
The military has bombarded the oil port of Ras Lanuf again and pro-Gaddafi forces have reportedly taken the nearby town of Brega.
There are also reports of fierce attacks on Ajdabiya, which is on the way to the opposition stronghold of Benghazi.
