Rebels gain control of Brega as Gadhafi’s forces retreat

by

Rebels have claimed victory in Brega, a bellwether town east of Tripoli. The rebels say Col. Gadhafi’s forces are retreating west, BBC News reports “Their food and water supplies are cut and they now will not be able to sleep. It is a matter of time before they come to their senses, we hope to prevent some bloodshed,” said Shamsiddin Abdulmolah, a rebel spokesman, to ADP news agency. Still, because the streets are strewn with mines, it’s hard for the rebels to secure the area.
