Two Benghazi tribes support Gaddafi-Libyan TV

TUNIS, March 16 (Reuters) - Two major tribes in the rebel-held city of Benghazi told Libyan state television they supported Muammar Gaddafi, the television said on Wednesday.

“In a call to the Libyan satellite channel the tribes of Tarhuna and Warfalla in Benghazi confirmed their support for the leader,” it said. Benghazi, Libya’s second city, has been the main stronghold of the rebellion against Gaddafi’s rule. (Reporting by Mariam Karouny, editing by Tim Pearce)
