As the world watches the bloody siege of Misrata, fighting has intensified in Libya’s Western Mountains.
The range stretches from the south of Tripoli to Tunisia, and is inhabited by Berbers, viewed with distrust by the Gaddafi regime. The Berbers in the Western Mountains have now joined the battle to oust the colonel.
Rebels say they have retaken the town of Al Majabira close to the border with Tunisia.
Anti-Gaddafi forces use each victory to plunder government weaponry as the army of civilians continues to battle better trained and better equipped government troops.
