26th April 2011, Comments 0 comments

British Defence Secretary Liam Fox on Tuesday said rebels had gained "momentum" in the war in Libya, adding Moamer Kadhafi's regime was on the "back foot."

"We've seen some momentum gained in the last few days," Fox told reporters after meeting US Defense Secretary Robert Gates at the Pentagon.

"We've seen some progress made in Misrata. And it's very clear that the regime is on the back foot," he said.
