The BBC's Jon Leyne in Benghazi says that, after heavy bombardment, government soldiers have made their first ground assault on the town. The advance by troops loyal to Libya's leader comes ahead of the UN Security Council discussing a no-fly zone. Ground assault on Libyan rebels This is in Ajdabiya - the last town before rebel headquarters in Benghazi.
Those poor people are on their own! We are ignoring cries from the rebels and others for the US to take the lead and impose a no fly zone now before it is too late. Instead Hillary is in Egypt touring Tahrir Square meeting the people as she and Obama know Gaddafi is going to squash resistance and Egypt is the best shot at having a Democracy. The cold world of reality! Clinton tours Cairo's Tahrir Square, US secretary of state pushes for more democratic reforms and pledges help during two-day visit.
