The rebels captured the port on Friday but Libyan state TV has reported that government forces have retaken it along with the important coastal cities of Zawiyah and Misrata.
Rebel spokesman Wonif Bou Hanada denied this saying: “The revolutionary forces confirm that they are still in control of the areas that have been liberated and what has been broadcast on the (pro-Gaddafi) channels is incorrect and is not true on the ground.”
Rebel forces say they are still intent on taking Gaddafi’s hometown of Sirte, 500km from Tripoli.
