BENGHAZI, Libya (Reuters) - Eastern Libyan forces have advanced to a position just south of the town of Gharyan, which lies to the south of the capital Tripoli, local mayor Yousef al-Bdairi said on Thursday.

“The situation now is very calm inside the city... There is a gathering of those forces who came from the south (of Gharyan)...,” he told Reuters by telephone.
