BENGHAZI - Rebels in eastern Libya fear Muammar Gaddafi could act like a "wounded wolf" and attack the OPEC-producer's oilfields if the West did not seek to stop him with tactical air strikes, a rebel spokesman said on Monday.

"The West needs to move or this crazy guy (Gaddafi) will do something to the oilfields. He is like a wounded wolf. If the West does not intervene with tactical air strikes he could put the oilfields out of commission for a long time," said Mustafa Gheriani, a media officer for the rebel movement in Benghazi.
