"Forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi on Wednesday retook a village south of the capital seized by rebels a week ago, delivering a set-back to rebel plans for a march on Tripoli. The loss of the village of Al-Qawalish, about 100 km (60 miles) from the capital, underlined the faltering pattern of the rebel advances that has led some of the rebels’ Western backers to push for a political solution to the conflict instead."
