A rebel fighter stands guard at the eastern gate to the Libyan town of Kabaw in the Western Mountain region, about 230 km (140 miles) southwest of the capital Tripoli, May 11, 2011.

The rebels’ hold on these flat-topped mountains is precarious at best, and there is no sign they can advance against the superior firepower of forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi.
