NEAR SIRTE - A convoy of 20 military vehicles including truck-mounted anti-aircraft guns was seen leaving Muammar Gaddafi's stronghold of Sirte on Sunday and moving westwards towards Tripoli, a Reuters reporter said.




Dozens of civilian cars carrying families and loaded with people's belongings were also seen driving westwards along the coastal road from the city of Sirte towards the Libyan capital.


Libyan rebels, emboldened by the capture of Ajdabiyah to the east of Sirte, have been aggressively pushing west on Sunday to retake more territory from Gaddafi's forces.
