Dragging on for months, the Libyan revolution is moving slowly to its end, as the rebels have captured almost all of Bani Wali, reports The Associated Press. "Libyan revolutionary forces have captured almost all of Bani Walid, one of Moammar Gadhafi's last remaining strongholds, but still face pockets of resistance as they try to end a weeks-long standoff, officials said Monday," writes the AP. While the revolutionaries only have two remaining cities to take, the loyalists haven't given up as easily as the revolutionaries had hoped. The National Transitional Council says it controls more than 90 percent of Bani Walid, but if the last few months are any indication, the loyalists still have some fight in them and might not give up too easily.
