Rebels take control of Libyan town

KIKLA, Libya, June 14 (Reuters) - Forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi have pulled out of the town of Kikla, about 150 km (90 miles) southwest of Tripoli, and rebels are now in control, a Reuters photographer there said on Tuesday.

The photographer, Youssef Boudlal, said pro-Gaddafi forces had retreated to positions about 9 km from the town. The rebels were setting up defensive positions in case of a counter-attack, he said. (Reporting by Youssef Boudlal; Writing by Christian Lowe; Editing by Janet Lawrence)
