Libya rebels chase Gaddafi cells, arrest 63

LIBYA: Libyan rebels on Sunday rounded up at least 63 people in an ongoing bid to tighten security in the eastern city of Benghazi and rout armed groups loyal to Moamer Kadhafi, a spokesman told AFP. "This morning we caught about 38 and later today more than 25," Mustafa al-Sagazly said.

The arrests come hot on the heels of a five-hour raid on a roadside factory, which rebels said was the base of operations of an armed group taking orders from Kadhafi's regime and suspected in the assassination of their army chief. "Four of our fighters were killed in the operation," said Sagazly.

He said five Kadhafi loyalists were also killed in the clashes. Traffic in Benghazi returned to normal on the eve of Ramadan and there were signs on the streets in support of the rebel forces that carried out the raid by order of the ministry of interior.
