TRIPOLI - Libyan government forces pulled out from the city of Ajdabiyah on Saturday following an air assault by Western coalition forces, a senior government official said.

"They (Western forces) were heavily involved, so the Libyan armed forces decided to leave Ajdabiyah this morning," Khaled Kaim, a deputy foreign minister, told reporters.

He also accused Western coalition forces of directly aiding rebels fighting against leader Muammar Gaddafi.
