Benghazi rebels stay defiant

Rebels say they will fight and defeat pro-Gaddafi forces approaching eastern Libyan city.


    In Benghazi - Libya's rebel-controlled second largest city - opposition protesters are buoyed by news that fighters in a nearby town have beaten back an offensive by Muammar Gaddafi's forces.

    While some in the city are apprehensive that the war may still come to their door step, they remain defiant, vowing to fight on to defeat Gaddafi's troops.

    Al Jazeera's Tony Birtley reports from Benghazi.
