Last Throes

Forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi have killed at least 15 guards and injured two others in an attack on an oil facility outside the coastal town of Ras Lanuf, fighters of Libya's National Transitional Council (NTC) have said.

Citing NTC fighters present at the scene, Al Jazeera's Hoda Abdel-Hamid said a column of vehicles carrying armed Gaddafi loyalists drove up to the refinery's checkpoint on Monday morning.


NTC fighters, however, said they had advanced towards Sirte despite tougher than expected resistance from Gaddafi loyalists.

The NTC has said that it will not declare Libya "liberated" until it has taken control of towns still in the hands of Gaddafi loyalists.


I thought they were supposed to have those oil facilities well guarded. Although the Qadafi family now seems to be in self-imposed exile, it appears to me as though the Qadafi “loyalists” are not quite so beaten as we are being told.

....but hey, do what you will anyway.
