Libyan PM: Libyan Army reclaims key town

The Libyan government said Sunday it had retaken the key town of Bir Al-Ghanam after losing it briefly to rebel forces.

Libyan Prime Minister Baghdadi Al-Mahmoudi told reporters in Tripoli that rebel forces had the town for only a few hours. Bir al-Ghanam “is now back in the hands of the honorable brave tribes, with its surface back in normal life and under the control of the legitimate government of Libya,” Al-Mahmoudi said.
