Libyan soccer stars abandon Colonel Gaddafi

Four of the national soccer team of Libya, and the coach of one of the countrys top club sides have abandoned Colonel Gaddafi and his regime, and defected to the ant-government rebels.

The move is a bitter propaganda blow to the Libyan dictator, especially as the  coach is Adel bin Issa from Tripoli’s top club al-Ahli, which is owned by Gaddafi’s son Al-Saadi.

Nato also rubbished Libyan claims that fifteen civilians had been killed in an air-strike on the oil town of Brega.
