A Libyan rebel spokesman said today that Moammar Gadhafi's youngest son was killed in a NATO air strike on the western town of Zlitan.
According to the rebel reports, Khamis Gadhafi was among 33 government troops killed early this morning.
But the Libyan government is denying this.
The BBC's James Reynolds was in Zlitan yesterday and says "government forces appear to be in control" of this key city, which the rebels really need to take control of if they hope to assault Gadhafi's stronghold of Tripoli.
