Libyan rebels in Brega shift focus

AFP  July 25 2011

Libyan rebels say demining efforts outside the eastern oil hub Barge are being hampered by a lack of specialised kit, and that fighting against Muammar Gaddafi’s forces has lost some intensity.

“We have no choice. We have to clear the sand of mines,” Mohammed Seaway, a spokesman for the Union of Revolutionary Forces in Addable, told AFP.

He said the mine problem has sapped some momentum from the campaign to clear Barge of loyalists, although the rebels said on Sunday they captured one soldier and sent scores more fleeing west to Abuser village on the road to Ras Laming
