Taking cover

A rebel fighter takes cover from shelling by soldiers loyal to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi during a battle near Ras Lanuf. Heavily armed rebels clashed with forces loyal to Moammar Gadhafi on Friday on the outskirts of the key oil terminal of Ras Lanuf as the head of Libya's rebel council vowed "victory or death". The rebels were attacking a military base on the outskirts of Ras Lanuf, a major oil port on the Mediterranean Sea, which has a refinery, pipelines and a terminal, and the army responded with artillery fire and helicopters firing machine guns.
