Libya rebels take control of Zawiyah oil refinery

Aug 18 (Reuters) - ZAWIYAH, Aug 18 (Reuters) - Libyan rebels were in control of the coastal oil refinery in Zawiyah on Thursday following fighting with forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi, a Reuters reporter at the refinery said.

Small groups of rebels were inside the complex and there was no sign of pro-Gaddafi forces, the reporter said. (Reporting by Yvonne Bell; editing by Richard Valdmanis)
