Libyan rebels gather around a burning T-72 tank belonging to forces of Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi, which were targeted the day before by a French air strike, in Shat al-Bedin 50 kms West of Benghazi.

Allied attacks on Libya began over the weekend, in an attempt to disable Libya's air defenses. Pro-Ghadafi forces say that civilians have been injured by the allied bombings, a claim denied by the countries involved in the intervention.
