Gadhafi loyalists strike at rebels

Army units and militiamen loyal to Moammar Gadhafi struck back against rebellious Libyans in Tripoli, Benghazi and Zawiya.

The bodies of protesters shot to death by forces loyal to Moammar Gadhafi were left on the streets of a restive district in the Libyan capital Tuesday, an opposition activist and a resident said, while the longtime leader defiantly went on state TV to show he was still in charge, though the eruption of turmoil in the capital after a week of protests and bloody clashes in Libya's eastern cities has sharply escalated the challenge to Gadhafi.
