(Associated Press: 1009 PST, March 1, 2011) Anti-government fighters in the eastern city of Benghazi said on Tuesday that they would keep up their fight to oust embattled leader Muammar Gaddafi, even as life appeared to be slowly returning to normal in other parts of the city.
The Fight Goes On to Oust Gaddafi
(Euronews: 0000 PST, March 1, 2011) The people of Benghazi in the east of Libya may be free but they know there is still some way to go before the whole country is rid of Gaddafi's rule. With reports that forces loyal to the Libyan leader are massing for a counter attack near the Tunisian border, many Benghazi men are signing up as volunteers to help their brethren in the west. In Libya, most men have done compulsory military service.
