Libyan rebels are seen on the road out of Misrata, 118 miles from Sirte, Libya on Saturday. Rebel fighters pushed increasingly leaderless regime gunmen to the outskirts of Tripoli, as severe shortages of fuel, water and electricity paralyzed the battle-scarred capital and the stench of growing piles garbage filled the air. The rebels, who now control most of Libya, said they are preparing for an assault on Gadhafi's hometown of Sirte, his last major bastion, if negotiations with tribal leaders there fail. Rebels deployed in Bin Jawad, a town about 100 miles east of Sirte, said they are waiting for NATO to bomb Scud missile launchers and possible weapons warehouses there.
