Elements among Libya’s anti-Gaddafi forces have said they will attack one of the dictator’s strongholds before a deadline for the town’s surrender expires.
The Nato-backed National Transitional Council (NTC) had reaffirmed a week-long grace period for making terms to avoid bloodshed.
But fighters outside Bani Walid – the town where the NTC said Colonel Muammar Gaddafi had taken refuge – said they want to move in without delay.
A spokesman for Libya’s leader for 42-years claimed the ousted dictator remains in the country and is surrounded by loyalists.
