CAIRO - Forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi seized control of the town of Kufra in the remote southeastern desert, state television reported on Thursday.

"Libyan forces have seized full control of the town of Kufra and purified it of the armed gangs," the television quoted a military spokesman as saying.

There was no independent confirmation of the report.

Al Jazeera television earlier reported that clashes were under way between Gaddafi's forces and rebels who controlled the town.
