Libyan rebels recapture front-line town of Ajdabiya

Libyan rebels have regained control of the frontline oil town of Ajdabiya.

Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's forces seized the town last week as they advanced east to quell an uprising now in its fifth week.

The recapture of the town came after a seventh night of bombardment by allies enforcing a UN-mandated no-fly zone.

The BBC's Ben Brown is on the outskirts of Ajdabiya where there were scenes of jubilation among the insurgents.
