Smoke raises from a military army base that fell to the rebels opposed to Libyan leader Col. Moammar Gadhafi following an airstrike by Libyan warplanes that attacked in the oil town of Ras Lanouf, in eastern Libya, on Sunday, March 6, 2011. The anti-Gadhafi rebels fared better elsewhere, capturing the key oil port of Ras Lanouf from regime forces on Friday night, their first military victory in a potentially long and arduous westward march from the east of the country to Tripoli, the capital.
