There are reports emerging from Libya that the Gaddafi stronghold town of Bani Walid has surrendered to the rebels without any blood being spilt.

The Italian press agency ANSA is quoting the rebel radio station Free Libya saying forces of the new administration had entered the town without any violence after negotiations with local leaders.

The radio station claimed the deposed leader Muammar Gaddafi left the town three days ago.

Rebel forces have been amassing outside Bani Walid for days.

The National Transitional Council set a deadline for the remaining towns loyal to Gaddafi to lay down their arms, and then extended it by a week in an attempt to avoid further bloodshed.

Gaddafi’s whereabouts are still not known.
