BERLIN - Gun battles between forces loyal to Libya's Muammar Gaddafi and rebels in Libya's northeastern city of Nalut killed at least 8 rebels and wounded 13 more, a rebel fighter in Nalut said on Saturday. "The battles started yesterday and are continuing today," the fighter, Abou Saa, told Reuters. "The revolutionaries destroyed six armored vehicles and killed more than 45 enemy soldiers. The rebels surrounded Gaddafi's forces, who are holed up in a compound."

The report could not be immediately verified and there was no immediate comment from Gaddafi's side.
