A Libyan rebel urges people to leave, as shelling from Gadhafi's forces started landing on the front line outside Bin Jawwad, 150 km east of Sirte, central Libya, on March 29.

AP's Anja Niedringhaus writes: BIN JAWWAD, Libya — For the second straight day, we came to Libya’s front line, and it was very tense when we arrived. Then the shelling from Moammar Gadhafi’s forces started, and it grew closer and closer. Suddenly a shell hit a house nearby. That’s when the rebel in this picture chased us all down at full speed, screaming, “Get out of here, fast! Get out of here!” Everybody ran, or sped away in pickup trucks. It’s incredibly stressful on the front lines here — six years after I stopped smoking, I’m back on two packs a day. I’ve been covering wars for 20 years, but this tops everything. And as I type this, the front line is moving toward us. Time to start moving again.
