Libya crisis in maps: Day by day

Saturday 26 March

The rebels recapture the eastern frontline oil town of Ajdabiya from Gaddafi loyalists. It was the first town to be retaken by the rebels since the campaign to enforce a UN resolution began a week ago.

A Libyan minister said government forces had pulled out after being bombed by allied aircraft. He accused them of directly aiding the rebels.

A BBC correspondent in Ajdabiya saw government tanks and vehicles that had been destroyed and abandoned.

Air attacks were also reported on Gaddafi forces in Misrata.

And explosions rocked a suburb of Tripoli, with witnesses saying a military radar station was ablaze.
