CAIRO - Libyan rebels fought a fierce battle with Muammar Gaddafi's top military commander at his farm in Tripoli on Wednesday, a rebel spokesman said in comments broadcast on Al Arabiya TV.

Abdel Salam Abu Zaakouk said that heavy fighting was under way in a farm belonging to the chief of staff of the Libyan armed forces, Abdul Rahman Al Sayd.

"He (Sayd) is leading the battle with the rebels and he is still inside the farm," Abu Zaakouk told the Dubai-based channel without giving further details.
