The International Criminal Court at the Hague issued an arrest warrant for Moammar Gadhafi today. But Libyan officials quickly rejected the court's authority, claiming it has ignored what they called crimes committed by NATO in Libya.

Meanwhile, rebel forces in Libya have clashed with troops loyal to Col Moammar Gadhafi about 50 miles southwest of the capital, Tripoli.

A rebel spokesman in the Nafusa mountains said there had been heavy fighting on the outskirts of the strategic town of Bir al-Ghanam.
