Libyan rebels gain momentum

Pro-democracy fighters are on the move heading west following latest victory in reclaiming Brega.



    Libyan rebels have begun advancing rapidly westward, moving through Uqayla and on to Ras Lanuf where there is fighting.

    The pro-democracy fighters, who are quickly retaking control of key areas in the country's east, already have control of Brega and Ajdabiya.
