Gaddafi forces push rebels eastwards from Ras Lanuf

UQAYLAH, Libya - Libyan troops forced rebels to retreat overnight from the outskirts of the oil town of Ras Lanuf, pushing the front line eastwards, a rebel officer said on Saturday.
The front line now stands just between the rebel-held town of Uqaylah and Ras Lanuf, where oil storage tanks were hit during Friday's fighting. Rebels blamed an air strike but the government denied hitting the oil plant.
