Libya rebels gain diplomatic boost

Libyan rebel delegations kick off new diplomatic campaigns in UK and US to seek more support.

    The Libyan opposition seems to be scoring one diplomatic victory after another over Muammar Gaddafi.

    The Obama administration has invited a Libyan rebel delegation to the White House for talks on Friday, while Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, the National Transitional Council chairman, met David Cameron, the British prime minister in London on Thursday.

    Meanwhile, the Libyan fighters have claimed military gains in besieged city of Misurata.

    Al Jazeera’s Toni Birtley has this report from Benghazi.
