Per Al-Jazeera, the momentum that Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi picked up on Friday continues to today:
Forces loyal to Gaddafi have attacked several rebel-held cities along the country’s coastline in a bid to halt the anti-government forces’ rapid advance to the capital Tripoli. Dozens have died in a dramatic escalation of the conflict gripping the oil-rich North African nation.
“For a few days the rebels were making gains, but overnight it would appear that pro-Gaddafi forces took some ground,” Al Jazeera’s Jacky Rowland, reporting from Brega, said on Monday morning.
Oil (WTI) is above $106 now.
