NATO strikes pro-Gaddafi areas in Libya

NATO warplanes struck several targets in areas still loyal to fugitive leader Muammar Gaddafi.



Tripoli: NATO warplanes struck several targets in areas still loyal to fugitive leader Muammar Gaddafi as revolutionary forces said they had to retreat from a key loyalist stronghold after coming under heavy fire.

The Western alliance said on Sunday that it hit a tank, two armed vehicles and one multiple rocket launcher the day before near Bani Walid. Airstrikes also targeted the areas around Gaddafi`s hometown of Sirte, and the towns of Waddan and Sabha in the south.

The barrages came as Gaddafi loyalists pushed back hard against an assault on Bani Walid in a sign that the battle is far from over.
An area military commander, Abdel-Razak al-Nadouri, says a large number of people entered Bani Walid but NATO asked them to pull back to allow for the airstrikes.
