Further gains for Gaddafi in east

Muammar Gaddafi's forces reportedly take the town of Brega as they push east.

    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.
