"Forces loyal to Moammar Gaddafi stormed this rebel stronghold Saturday for the first time since coalition airstrikes began last month, moving the front line closer to the opposition capital, Benghazi. ... the battle showed that the ragtag rebel army of the east remains in disarray as Gaddafi’s forces gain ground and adapt to NATO airstrikes. Since NATO took control of the skies from coalition forces — who struck last month to stop Gaddafi’s forces from overrunning the east — the front line has crept slowly toward Benghazi, where the uprising against Gaddafi began in February."
