"All of Ajdabiya is free," Saif Sadawi, a 20-year-old rebel fighter says.

Libyan rebels have regained control of the eastern gateway city of Ajdabiya after international airstrikes on Moammar Qadhafi’s forces.

Saif Sadawi, a 20—year—old rebel fighter with an RPG in his hands, says the city’s eastern gate fell late Friday and the western gate fell at dawn on Saturday after airstrikes on both those locations.

“All of Ajdabiya is free,” he says.

People are driving through streets, honking car horns in celebration in the city, which has been under siege for over a week.
