"Libya’s ramshackle rebel army pushed west on Sunday to retake a series of towns from the forces of Muammar Gaddafi as they pulled back under pressure from Western air strikes. Emboldened by the capture of the strategic town of Ajdabiyah with the help of foreign warplanes on Saturday, the rebels have within two days dramatically reversed military losses in their five-week insurgency and regained control of all the main oil terminals in eastern Libya, as far as the town of Bin Jawad."
