"Groups of Libyan rebels and civilians have fled from the eastern town of Ajdabiya after a rebel armoured unit was hit by apparent NATO air strikes, allowing government troops to advance. Families packed into cars and trucks on Thursday and joined rebel military vehicles in a convoy heading northeast toward the de facto opposition capital of Benghazi, around 160 kilometres away. Libyan state television claimed that forces loyal to longtime leader Muammar Gaddafi had entered Ajdabiya, but residents said they could see no sign of them." (04/08/11)
