Gaddafi forces retake village south of Tripoli

ZINTAN - Forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi retook on Wednesday the village of Al-Qawalish, south of the capital, which was captured by rebels a week ago, rebel fighters said.
A rebel driving an armored pick-up truck who was refueling in the nearby town of Zintan said Gaddafi's forces had swept through Al-Qawalish from the east and now controlled as far as the checkpoint on the western edge of the village.
"We are fueling up, preparing and, God willing, we are going to take it back," the fighter said.
