Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's forces have recaptured the important coastal cities of Zawiyah and Misrata from rebels, state television said on Sunday.



It said government forces were also heading for Libya's second largest city Benghazi in the country's east, epicentre of a two-week-old revolt against Gaddafi's 41-year rule in the oil-producing North African country.
