Fight for Bani Walid continues

Fighters clash with Gaddafi loyalists in key flashpoint city.

    National Transitional Council fighters entered Bani Walid on Friday night after negotiations failed, and Gaddafi loyalist snipers responded to the entrance with live fire.

    The town is one of the last three major flashpoint cities under control of Gaddafi loyalists, according to reports.
