Libyan intelligence documents show ties to CIA


That's according to documents seen Saturday by The Associated Press. Rendition is the process of abducting and moving a person from one nation to another.

The intelligence documents, which were found in Tripoli, provided new details on the ties between Western countries and /*Gadhafi*/'s regime. Many of those same countries backed the /*NATO*/ attacks that helped /*Libya*/'s rebels force Gadhafi from power.

Meanwhile Libya's opposition leader says rebel forces will lay siege to pro-Gadhafi cities until a deadline for their surrender expires Sept. 10.

The head of the National Transitional Council said the rebel military is supplying humanitarian aid to the cities but will maintain a siege until the towns surrender.

Saturday, rebel fighters closed in on one of Gadhafi's last strongholds, the remote desert town of Bani Walid. A rebel commander said the town's tribal elders have been given until Sunday to surrender.
