Transcript of "LIBYA-Benghazi wait for the Worse-March 16"

  1. 2. 2011 – March 16 Libya revolt : over in 48 hours ? – Benghazi wait for the worse Massive exode to Egypt - Humanitarian emergency on Libya's borders A day after routing a ragtag army in an eastern town near the rebel capital of Benghazi, forces loyal to Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi launched attacks on the city of Misurata, the last rebel stronghold in western Libya, about 125 miles east of the capital, Tripoli. Government forces fired artillery, bombarding the city of several hundred thousand as tanks moved in preparation for a ground advance. Col Gaddafi's son Saif al-Islam told Euronews TV that: "Everything will be over in 48 hours," even if a no-fly zone were imposed. Jalal al-Gallal of the National Libyan Transitional Council said there would be a "massacre" if the international community did not intervene . March 15 In Ajdabiya, forces loyal to Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi routed an army of insurgents and would-be revolutionaries holding the last defensive line before the rebel capital of Benghazi. There were no signs of preparations for a vigorous defense in Benghazi itself. As diplomacy faltered over the question of outside intervention, France said there had been no agreement at a meeting of the Group of 8 powers on the contentious issue of enforcing a no-flight zone to ground the loyalist air force. March 14 Following a brutal, weeklong battle that recaptured — and nearly demolished — the strategically important town of Zawiya, forces loyal to Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi cranked up military and psychological pressure against rebels on two fronts, offering an amnesty to those who surrendered their weapons while bombing Ajdabiya, a strategic linchpin in the east, and surrounding a rebel-held town in the west.

Tens of thousands of guest workers from Egypt, Tunisia, Bangladesh, Sudan and other countries are fleeing to the Tunisian border to escape the fighting in and around the Libyan capital of Tripoli. Men, women and children have descended on Tunisia, creating a humanitarian crisis in the country which itself has only recently toppled its former president in an uprising. In Libya Muammar Gaddafi has vowed to fight to the end.
