Rebels fear Gaddafi infiltrators

Libyan rebels fear Gaddafi loyalists may be among them, posing as civilians.


    As fighting between pro- and anti-government forces continues in Libya, rebels in the east of the country suspect there is another force among them - Gaddafi loyalists.

    Rebels are concerned that Gaddafi forces, dressed as civilians and driving mounted pick-up trucks just like the opposition forces, may have actually infiltrated their ranks.
