"The United States and European Union turned up the heat on Libya, as fresh fighting erupted Wednesday along rebel lines at the oil town of Brega and state television showed footage of a son of Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi, days after rebels reported him dead.
US diplomats are visiting several African countries to urge leaders to press Kadhafi to leave power immediately, officials in Washington said, while the EU slapped new economic sanctions on Kadhafi's regime.
