Libyan Rebels Continue Fighting with U.S. Backing

Fighting continues in Libya as rebels attacked Monday, in an attempt to regain control of Ajdabiya.

The United States backed the Libyan rebels with airstrikes that helped them siege Benghazi, the Washington Post reported.

The supporters of Moammar Gaddafi retreated from Benghazi into Ajdabiya, but do not plan to give up, the New York Post reported.

Rebels regained control of an important oil terminal, Zuwaytinah, which had been captured by the government last week.
