(Reuters) – An international body said on Friday it would mount an operation, probably by sea, to evacuate thousands of foreigners trapped in Tripoli by rebel advances that have put Muammar Gaddafi’s capital under siege.

The rebels, who have transformed the battlefield this week with victories taking them ever closer to the city, launched an assault east of the capital but were taking heavy casualties, a Reuters reporter at the front line said.

Rebel advances west and south of Tripoli in recent days have cut the road links between the capital and the outside world and severed the supply lines of Gaddafi’s forces, putting his 41-year-old rule under unprecedented pressure.

In a sign of fighting hitting closer to Gaddafi’s inner circle, the brother of the spokesman who has served as the leader’s public face was reported killed.
