Rockets forced the exodus Gaddafi in Libya

The army of Muammar Gadafilanzó Tuesday a barrage of rockets on the rebel city of Zinta, in the western mountains. Thus, it has exacerbated the humanitarian crisis and forced thousands to flee the country. For its part, NATO officials met Wednesday in Brussels to review progress of its operations, evaluations rejected talk of a deadlock in the battlefield, despite intervention.

Different countries of the Alliance will meet Thursday in Rome, to help ensure financial rebels. Libyan regime opponents claim that 40 rockets hit Zinta and that the arrival of humanitarian aid from Misrata has been hampered by the soldiers pro-Gaddafi. A rebel spokesman said the fighting has reignited in the eastern suburbs of Misrata, but the intense bombing of NATO aircraft appears to have regained the port key to controlling the city.

In Tripoli, some witnesses heard two loud explosions on Thursday night, without finding any explanation of its origin. Gaddafi, who seized power in 1969, has not been seen in public since the attack he suffered in his home last Saturday, which claimed the life of his youngest son and three grandchildren.

Official sources say the Libyan capital is well. U.S. agencies believe that Gaddafi is alive. "The best reports say he is alive," said CIA director, Leon Panetta. Having vowed to fight until death, Gaddafi has not followed the lead of their counterparts dictators of Egypt and Tunisia, who withdrew in the wake of riots in the Muslim world.

The civil war has divided the country, a desert oil producer and the fourth largest in Africa, two governments: one in the west dominated by the tyrant from Tripoli and one in the east, controlled by rebel forces. A senior commander of the Libyan mission in NATO said "I personally do not think there is a real impasse, we say slow, but sure." The military leaders of the 28 member countries of NATO and allied countries met Wednesday in Brussels to evaluate the progress of its operations, including Libya.

For its part, the spokesman for the refugee agency of the UN, Adrian Edwards said from Geneva that "the past weekend, over 8000 people, most of them Berbers, came to Dehiba, southern Tunisia. Almost all are women and children. " The border crossing has changed hands Dehiba continuously in the last week and the battles have come to cross into Tunisian territory.

Meanwhile, more people leave Libya by sea to Italy, after a hiatus of 10 days by bad weather. Some enclaves as Misrata Zinta and resist the onslaught of Gaddafi, in western Libya, in the area controlled by the rebels increased pressure on the need for money to try to restore infrastructure and establish a viable government.

Opponents say they expect up to three billion dollars in credit from Western governments, to feed and equip their territories in eastern and support his campaign. With the Libyan economy in tatters, after more than two months of civil war, the funds to pay for food, medicine and government salaries on which it depends a lot of people begin to disappear.

The main focus of talks in Rome on Thursday will be to ensure the rebels financially and facilitate contacts with the deserters, as stated by French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe. The politician said that "it is not easy. There frozen Libyan values and, for legal reasons, thawing is very difficult." Juppe said that another point of meeting in Rome is to engage with the Qaddafi government defectors and those who wish to do so.

"There are many in Tripoli who want to talk. We try to coordinate it," said French. He added that participants will raise at the meeting the plan of French President Nicolas Sarkozy to hold a separate conference in the weeks before a meeting of "friends" of Libya, including deserters from the forces of Qaddafi and political groups, for work on a political solution to the crisis.
