Al Jazeera's Evan Hill sent us a picture of children in the Salaheddin neighbourhood on the southern outskirts of Tripoli look through a box looted from a nearby criminal investigations office. Rebels overran the district on Friday en route to a battle at the Khamis Brigade barracks. The box contained telephones. The children also looted sneakers.
Jacky Rowland reporting 13 km from Ras Lanuf in the oil terminal of al-Sidra said:
We are now very close to the frontline and the military checkpoint behind me is pretty much the last checkpoint before the frontline.
The rebel fighters have been able to push beyond Ras Lanuf right now, but in my experience they have never been able to push any further here. I was pretty close to this very same spot about five months ago.
The rebels are testing how far they can get. But the Gaddafi forces at the moment seem to have drawn a red line here just to the west of Ras Lanuf it seems like they really don't want the rebels to advance any further."
