Seven rebels killed in western Libya-rebel spokesman

CAIRO, April 15 (Reuter) - Forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi killed seven rebel fighters and wounded 11 in attacks on the town of Yafran in western Libya on Friday, a rebel spokesman told Al Jazeera television.

The spokesman read out the names of the dead rebels on the Qatar-based satellite channel. Yafran is part of the Western Mountains region, an area inhabited by Berbers who are ethnically distinct from most Libyans.
