Gadhafi forces retake key oil town, report says

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

BENGHAZI, Libya >> Libyan state television has reported that forces loyal to Moammar Gadhafi have retaken the oil town of Brega in the east.

The report could not immediately be verified. Libyan TV has issued faulty reports claiming territory in the past.

Gadhafi has been swiftly advancing on the poorly equipped and loosely organized rebels who had seized much of the country.

On Saturday, Gadhafi’s forces pushed the front line miles deeper into rebel territory to just 25 miles outside Brega, the site of a major oil terminal. Sunday’s report said Brega has been “cleansed from armed gangs.”
