Gaddafi forces close to Ajdabiya


AJDABIYA – Libyan regime forces pounded rebels with heavy artillery west of Ajdabiya on Sunday, forcing hundreds of residents and some fighters to flee, as a refugee rescue operation in Misrata was underway.
“Gaddafi’s forces approached the city, they bombed the western gate. The sound of the guns are coming closer, that’s why many are leaving,” said Omar Salim. Another civilian, 48-year-old Milud Ghait, appealed NATO to launch air strikes on the area.
