Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Gaddafi forces have bypassed Ajdabiya, where "heavy fighting" was reported earlier today and are now 50 kilometers from Benghazi.  Radio Free Libya in Benghazi is calling on the youth to take up arms and prepare for battle.

Looks like Gaddafi is attempting to re-take Benghazi before French, British, and other countries can intervene with their air forces.  Smooth move, if it works.  If it doesn't those units will be, effectively, lost to the regime.
