Libyan rebels lose last stronghold west of Tripoli
Tuesday's victory solidifies Gaddafi's hold on the western stretch of coastline.
Tobruk (Libya): Witnesses say Moammar Gaddafi's forces have captured Zwara, the last rebel-held city west of Tripoli to fall back under government control.
Tuesday's victory solidifies Gaddafi's hold on the western stretch of coastline from the capital to the Tunisian border even as the Libyan leader advances against rebels in their eastern strongholds.
A cacophony of gunfire could be heard on the telephone on Tuesday as army troops celebrated, but rebels promised to regroup and fight back.
Zwara was one of the first towns seized by the rebels as they made gains early in the monthlong uprising against Gaddafi's rule.
Rebels in Zwara say government troops retook the town after battering it with heavy tank and artillery fire, but sporadic street battles are ongoing.
