Ajdabiya - At least seven people were killed and more than 50 wounded in clashes between Libyan rebels and supporters of Moamer Kadhafi at the coastal hamlet of Bin Jawad, hospital figures showed on Monday.

The casualty list posted at Ajdabiya hospital, where most of the wounded were taken after Sunday's clashes, reported seven dead and about 52 people hurt.

Witnesses said another six or seven dead were taken to the rebels' main stronghold of Benghazi, Libya's second city and further to the east, but that was not immediately possible to confirm.

The dead were all volunteer fighters, mostly from Benghazi.

The hospital in Ras Lanuf, which was closest to the fighting, was utterly deserted on Monday. A casualty list was pinned up on the window, giving a death toll of seven with 59 wounded, an AFP reporter said.
