Libyan jets bomb Ras Lanuf

Military aircraft target strategic oil hub, as anti-Gaddafi rebels vow to continue to fighting.

    Libyan military aircraft piloted by officers loyal to the embattled leader of the country have bombed targets in the rebel-held oil town of Ras Lanuf.

    The attacks are the latest in a series of counteroffensives by Muammar Gaddafi's military against anti-government forces, which also include members of the military who refuse to recognise Gaddafi's authority.

    Al Jazeera's Lawrence Lee reports on the latest developments in the country.
