Libya rebels capture Tawurgha town

Rebels control the western town from where Gaddafi forces used to attack Misrata.

    After months of stalemate, Libyan opposition fighters have broken through another Gaddafi front line, trapping his troops and capturing a town used to stage rocket attacks on civilians in Misrata.

    The offensive was a combined operation that involved several groups of fighters and NATO air strikes.

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Simmons reports from the town in northern Libya.
