KIKLA, Libya - Forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi have pulled out of the town of Kikla, about 150 k.m. southwest of Tripoli, and rebels are now in control, a Reuters photographer there said on Tuesday.
The photographer, Youssef Boudlal, said pro-Gaddafi forces had retreated to positions about 9 k.m. from the town. The rebels were setting up defensive positions in case of a counter-attack, he said.
