A worker scoops up a handful of urea made at the refinery. The petroleum product is used to manufacture fertilizers, livestock feed and plastic and vinyl. On Monday, EU officials added their voices to the international condemnation of the Moammar Kadafi regime. Catherine Ashton, the foreign policy chief for the European Union, said: "What is going on — the massive violence against peaceful demonstrators — shocks our conscience. It should spring us into action."

As gunmen set up a checkpoint Monday, in other parts of Libya rebels did battle with supporters of Kadafi. In Misurata, about rebels reportedly shot down a government plane and pushed back an offensive by forces loyal to Libyan leader Moammar Kadafi to retake the city. In Zawiya, government forces surrounded rebels but had not forced them to retreat.
