Libyan news

ZAWIYA, Libya – Moammar Gadhafi's regime gained momentum Friday, showing off its victory over rebels in Zawiya, a key city near Tripoli as it strengthened its hold on the capital and surrounding areas.

The government had claimed victory on Wednesday, but the rebels who are seeking to oust Gadhafi said fighting was ongoing.

An Associated Press reporter, who was escorted with other journalists into the city on Friday, said the main square that had been the center of resistance was clearly in government control after nearly a week of fierce fighting.
