AL-QAWALISH, Libya - Libyan rebel fighters are fighting forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi for control of Garyan, a town 80 km (50 miles) south of the capital, a rebel fighter told Reuters on Sunday.

"We entered it (Garyan) today," the fighter told Reuters as he drove towards the town. "We control 70 percent of Garyan. There is still fighting taking place at the moment."

A spokesman for Gaddafi's government said earlier on Sunday Garyan was still under Tripoli's control. It was not immediately possible to verify the rebels' account.
