Anti-Gaddafi troops enter Bani Walid


Libyan fighters poured into a desert town held by forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi on Friday as explosions and gunfire echoed around the town’s hills and valleys, a Reuters reporter said.
Bani Walid, 180 km (110 miles) south of Tripoli, has been under siege for two weeks, with hundreds of die-hard Gaddafi loyalists concentrated at its centre.
