Libyan Rebels Lose Ground; Arab League Wants No-Fly Zone

Libyan rebels battling forces loyal to Moammar Gadhafi are falling back from the oil port of Brega in their latest setback.

As NPR's Peter Kenyon reports from rebel-held Benghazi, Saturday also saw the first death of a journalist in the conflict.
