Gaddafi loyalists say inflict heavy casualties on foes

CAIRO, Sept 16 (Reuters) - Muammar Gaddafi loyalists have inflicted heavy losses on fighters of Libya’s new rulers in Bani Walid and are prepared for a long fight, a spokesman for Gaddafi said on Friday in audio comments broadcast on a Syria-based television station.

“The battle is far from over,” Moussa Ibrahim told Arrai television. “We have prepared ourselves for a long war. We have the equipment and the weapons,” he said.

Many anti-Gaddafi fighters were killed or captured in Bani Walid, he said. (Reporting by Ahmed Tolba, Writing by Sami Aboudi)
