AJDABIYA - Eighteen rebel fighters were killed and up to 150 wounded in clashes with forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi for control of the eastern oil hub of Brega on Tuesday, a doctor in a rebel-controlled town said.

"Yesterday it was a disaster," Dr. Sarahat Atta-Alah told Reuters at Ajdabiya hospital in eastern Libya on Wednesday.

Rebels have said they have encircled Brega, which they must take if they are to advance towards Tripoli, but fighters said they were still coming under fire from pro-Gaddafi forces.
