Libyan rebels capture town southwest of capital, raise rebel flags

Libyan rebels on Monday entered the town of Yafran, southwest of the capital, which was previously controlled by forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi, a Reuters photographer in the town said.

"The rebels say that they have taken the town," said the photographer Youssef Boudlal. "We are inside the town ... There is no sign of any Gaddafi forces."
"I can see the rebel flags ... We have seen posters and photos of Gaddafi that have been destroyed," he said.
