Gadhafi Forces Ambush Rebels In Eastern Libya

Rebels in Eastern Libya suffered a serious setback Sunday when they were ambushed by forces loyal to Col. Moammar Gadhafi in the city of Bin Jawad. The attack left the rebels' hold on the nearby city of Ras Lanuf in jeopardy, and halted the rebel advance on Gadhafi's hometown of Sirte.
