An anti-Gadhafi field commander says the top military official for revolutionary forces fighting loyalists in a key regime stronghold has been killed in a rocket attack.

Osama al-Fasi says the commander, Daw Saleheen, was killed Wednesday by a heat-seeking rocket while fighting in Bani Walid, southeast of Tripoli.

Saleheen was imprisoned for more than 20 years by Moammar Gadhafi's regime and was leading anti-Gadhafi forces in their battle for Bani Walid, one of the last remaining bastions of Gadhafi loyalists since the fall of Tripoli more than a month ago.
