ALGIERS - Forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi are using tanks and aircraft to attack the town of Zawiyah, 50 km (30 miles) west of the capital, but rebels still control the town center, two residents told Reuters on Tuesday.

"Fighting is still going on now. Gaddafi's forces are using tanks. There are also sporadic air strikes. ... But they could not reach the center of the town which is still in the control of the revolutionaries," said a resident, called Ibrahim, who spoke to Reuters by telephone. A second resident confirmed his account.
