AJDABIYAH - Forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi and rebels seeking to end his 41 years in power were fighting over the oil town of Brega in east Libya on Tuesday with no side in control, rebel fighters said.

"It is still back and forth. No side is in control," rebel fighter Adel Ibriki told Reuters in Ajdabiyah, shortly after after returning from Brega about 75 km (47 miles) away.

His comments were echoed by another fighter, Hussein al-Wami. Gaddafi's forces have advanced steadily across a coastal strip to retake other oil towns before moving on to Brega.
