Battle rages for key Libyan city

This BBC News article provides updates to the latest situation in Libya.  Pro-government forces are assaulting the city of Zawiya for the second day in a row in attempt to wrest its control away from the rebel forces.  Forces loyal to Gaddafi have surrounded the city with tanks and armored vehicles; they are also shelling the city with artillery.  Meanwhile in the port city of Ras Lanuf, rebel forces have defeated pro-government forces and taken control of the town.  The fight for Libya continues.  While the rebel forces control much of the major cities, Gaddifi and his loyal forces are still clearly in control of Tripoli.  This revolution may come down to an all at war for Tripoli.
