Libya rebels fight for town of Zliten under heavy fire

In Libya, the fight near the port city of Misrata is continuing to rage as forces loyal to Colonel Gaddafi fired a rocket attack into the centre of the city.

The assault comes as the rebels are slowly expanding their control after months of standoff.

One target is now to liberate the town of Zliten but each advance has been thwarted.
