ZLITAN - Libyan rebel fighters from Misrata have pushed closer to entering the coastal town of Zlitan after 48 hours of fierce fighting in which at least 27 fighters have been killed on the frontline.

Television footage obtained by Reuters showed rebels making quick advances on Saturday, firing machineguns and engaging in close combat fighting with forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi on the eastern outskirts of the town.

Government soldiers retaliated early on Sunday, pushing the rebels back slightly. Overall, the rebels are 3 km closer to Zlitan than they have been for the past 10 days.
