Libya: Sirte medical needs 'dire'

People in the besieged Libyan city of Sirte are in desperate need of medical aid, the International Red Cross has warned.

A team from the organisation has taken some supplies to the main hospital in the town, one of the last strongholds of Colonel Gaddafi's supporters.

The transitional government's forces have been launching assaults on the city for days.

Will Grant reports.
