Fighting in Libya

A Libyan anti-government rebel lies by the roadside at an advance checkpoint between the town of Ras Lanouf and Bin-Jawad, eastern Libya, Monday, March 7, 2011. An airstrike hit Ras Lanouf, a key oil port held by the rebels, on Monday but there were no casualties. A day earlier, a heavy assault by pro-regime forces stalled the rebel advance.
