A rebel army spokesman confirmed that there were preliminary skirmishes in Bani Walid itself, with a main attack due to take place on Saturday.

There were also reports of clashes on the outskirts of Col Muammar Gaddafi’s home town of Sirte on Friday night.

Commanders at the Bani Walid front said the rebels who had surrounded the town had moved in from the south and east.
