An anti-Gadhafi rebel holds a weapon Tuesday as he walks forward with other rebels to battle on the front line against pro-Gadhafi fighters near the town of Bin-Jawad in eastern Libya. Libyan warplanes launched at least three new airstrikes Tuesday near rebel positions in the oil port of Ras Lanouf, keeping up a counteroffensive to prevent the opposition from advancing toward leader Moammar Gadhafi's stronghold in the capital Tripoli.
