Boy steals car from Gadhafi's forces to escape besieged Libyan town

Another extraordinary story of bravery and foolhardiness out of Libya today: a young boy says that he stole a vehicle from Moammar Gadhafi's forces in order to escape the besieged town of Brega. He then drove at speed through the rebel front line, causing panic and coming under fire as he did so.

Rebel fighters shot the tires out of the vehicle as it sped through the front line but released the boy after listening to his story.
