Libyan rebels are gaining the upper hand in the ongoing conflict in the North African country, according to the head of political affairs at the United Nations, Lynn Pascoe.

Mr. Pascoe told the Security Council during a briefing that some of the fighting between government and rebel forces is taking place not far from the capital of Tripoli.

He said the top United Nations envoy for Libya, Abdul Elah al-Khatib continues to meet with the warring parties to find a political solution to the crisis.
