Bani Walid: 30 NTC fighters killed in battle

The National Transitional Council`s northern front commander said another 50 had been wounded.



Bani Walid: Fighting has claimed
the lives of 30 interim government fighters in the campaign to
capture the Gaddafi bastion of Bani Walid southeast of the
Libyan capital, Dr Mabruk Kernaf said on Saturday.

The National Transitional Council`s northern front
commander said another 50 had been wounded.

This was the first overall toll given on NTC casualties
since the start of fighting.

Meanwhile, a news agency reporter reported rockets being fired
by troops loyal to former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi at an
NTC position some five kilometres outside the desert city, 180
kilometres southeast of Tripoli.

NTC fighters launched a widespread assault on the city on
September 10, but withdrew the same night after encountering
fierce resistance.

There has been intermittent fighting since then, but NTC
forces are holding back on attempting a new assault.
