Al Jazeera's Zeina Khodr, reporting from Az-Zawiyah, says that the rebels have just managed to take control of a key highway that links Tripoli to Tunisia, though central parts of the city remain contested. The rebels are leading a march through a  neighbourhood near the highway, chanting slogans against Gaddafi.

She says the rebels are confident that they will be able to take the town.
