The debris of war in Libya. Burnt out tanks on the road to Tripoli. Leftovers from NATO's bombing campaign. Rebels move in on villages some 60 miles south of Tripoli. SOUNDBITE: Rebel fighter, saying (Arabic): "God willing, we are getting close to the city of Gharyan -- we are about 20-25 kilometres away from Gharyan. With God's will, we will enter Gharyan and with solidarity among the rebels and standing as one on the front-line, there will be victory -- bloody yes, but there will be victory in liberating Gharyan on our path towards Tripoli," Rebels are hoping to reach the main highway leading north into Tripoli, Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's stronghold. Hundreds of miles to the northeast another force of rebels is also trying to advance towards Tripoli. Libya has been convulsed by a civil war since February when thousands of people, inspired by revolutions in neighboring Egypt and Tunisia, rose up against Gaddafi's 41-year-rule.
