AJDABIYA, Libya Ã¢â‚¬â€ Rebels seized Ajdabiya on Saturday, government and rebel forces said, succeeding in an effort to retake this key town in the east following another night of allied air strikes against forces loyal to Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi.
LibyaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s deputy foreign minister, Khaled Kaim, acknowledged in a news conference that the Qaddafi government forces had Ã¢â‚¬Å“pulled backÃ¢â‚¬Â from Ajdabiya and reiterated accusations that the international air strikes were killing civilians as they provided air cover for the advancing rebel forces.
