A disturbing update from the raging civil war in Libya as Gaddafi retakes Zawiya :

The Gaddafi regime has issued a defiant warning that the "timefor action" had arrived as a sustained military assault forced the defeat of Libyan rebels in the strategically important town of Zawiya and their retreat from Ras Lanuf.

Amid squabbling among EU and Nato leaders on the eve of an emergency European summit on Libya in Brussels, Muammar Gaddafi's son said that a new offensive would be launched within days.
