Libyan warplanes have launched renewed air strikes on the rebel-held city of Ras Lanuf. They dropped bombs close to the coastal city’s oil refinery.
There were no reports of any fatalities but the AFP news agency said at least three rebel fighters had been injured.
Nevertheless, the opposition remains defiant. “With God’s Will, we will win. We’ll defeat this tyrant,” one rebel said. “We are not afraid of him or his tanks or planes.”
Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s forces are also using tanks, rockets and warplanes to attack the rebel-held Western town of Zawiyah.
