BREGA - A warplane bombed the eastern Libyan oil terminal town of Brega on Thursday, a day after troops loyal to Muammar Gaddafi launched a ground and air attack on the town that was repulsed by rebels.

"I heard the plane, then the explosion then saw the crater," said Mohammed Shibli in Brega, saying the bomb landed near the university for oil engineering which is about 2 km (1 mile) from the oil exporting terminal.

"There was an air strike about an hour and a half ago. I saw it with my own eyes," said Awadh Mohammed, a volunteer with the rebel forces.
