AGEILA, Libya- Libyan rebels have entered the oil-exporting town of Ras Lanuf after routing Muammar Gaddafi's troops further east, a rebel fighter told Reuters on the road to Ras Lanuf.

"There is no Gaddafi army in Ras Lanuf," said the fighter, Walid al-Arabi, quoting rebels who had returned from the town.

He said he believed the front line was now west of Ras Lanuf.
