Ras Lanouf

In my first attempt to cross the last rebel forces' checkpoint near the frontline before Ras Lanouf, pro-Gaddafi troops delivered an air strike at around 500 meters from the car I was traveling in.

A few minutes later, while interviewing a defective general at the same checkpoint, a second strike hit the ground forcing all the rebels to flee the area. Ras Lanouf is now in the hands of Gaddafi forces.

Below you can see a photograph from the first strike.
