Eyewitness gives euronews latest from Ras Lanuf


Some reports say the pro-government counter-attack on Ben Jawad degenerated into an artillery duel between the two sides. But the rebels were forced to retreat to the strategically important town of Ras Lanuf.

From there, eyewitness Tarik Hassan told euronews: “Ras Lanuf is still in the hands of the revolutionaries, and they are not going to leave it, but the (pro-Gaddafi) forces have kicked the residents from their homes in Ben Jawad. Those residents started to come from the area around Ben Jawad to Ras Lanuf and Nufaliyah and now there are virtually no citizens left in Ben Jawad.”

Every story can be told in many ways: see the perspectives from Euronews journalists in our other language teams.
