Opposition on battle against Libyan leader Gaddafi

Rebel forces have fought off an attempt by soldiers loyal to Col Muammar Gaddafi to retake the eastern oil town of Brega.

Gaddafi forces had moved into eastern areas for the first time since towns there fell to protesters two weeks ago.

Meanwhile, the BBC's Lyse Doucet spoke to Hafeez Ghoga, spokesman for the newly formed National Council in Benghazi, who said the group will not be holding talks with the Libyan leader.
