US Senator, John McCain, has arrived in the rebel stronghold of Benghazi.

He described rebels fighting Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's troops as heroic.

McCain will meet with the rebel National Transitional Council, the de-facto government in the eastern half of the country, and rebel fighters. He spoke to the media as he left his Benghazi hotel.

A few Libyans waved American flags as his vehicle drove past. McCain has been one of the strongest proponents in Congress of US military intervention in Libya.
