Rebels hold ground from mountain post

Fighters in Libya's western mountains speak exclusively to Al Jazeera about their battle against Gaddafi

    Libya's pro-democracy fighters have taken up a new line of defence in the Western Mountains, where, from their high vantage point they can easily observe the movements of Muammar Gaddafi's troops on the plains far below.

    It has been a successful last few moves for the NATO-aided rebels who have repelled attacks on land and sea in recent days – but things are far from over.

    As the rebels make their move across the desert, the movement’s leaders are meeting with world leaders to make sure that when the dust settles a new regime will see light of day.
