Rebels took control of the Ras Jdir border post on Libya's frontier with Tunisia on Friday after clashes with soldiers loyal to Muammar Gaddafi, witnesses said. 

Al Jazeera's Sue Turton reporting from Tripoli says: 

This is incredibly important not because it shows that they are managing to get rid of what is left of Gaddafi troops in that area, but more importantly it opens supply route now totally across from the west into Tripoli.
