Gaddafi forces press rebels, no-fly diplomacy crawls
AJDABIYAH, Libya (Reuters) – Muammar Gaddafi’s warplanes and helicopters bombed and strafed a Libyan rebel-held town on Tuesday while France admitted it has still not convinced world powers to impose a no-fly zone over the country.

Lightly armed rebel forces are struggling to hold back the relentless eastward advance of Libyan government troops along the bleak desert coast, slowly strangling the month-old uprising against Gaddafi’s 41 years of autocratic rule.

Jets launched air strikes on the western gate of Ajdabiyah, the last town before the rebel stronghold of Benghazi, witnesses said, and a helicopter strafed the town which lies on a strategic road junction.
