As Libya’s interim government falters, one town has actually fallen back into the control of Gaddafi loyalists. Officers from the National Transitional Council tell AFP that 100 to 150 fighters loyal to the late dictator attacked Bani Walid today, killing five, injuring dozens more, and seizing the town. The gunmen began flying a green flag overhead, a symbol of the old regime. It’s the first such attack since late October, when Bani Walid last fell from the hands of regime allies.
