Libya crisis in maps: Day by day
Thursday 24 March
The international coalition has kept up air strikes on Libya, as fighting continues between rebels and pro-Gaddafi forces in a number of key cities.
Air strikes: Loud explosions were heard in the Libyan capital Tripoli, and in the Tajoura region east of Tripoli. A French warplane destroyed a Libyan aircraft that had been flying in breach of the UN no-fly zone, just after it landed in Misrata.
Late on Thursday British jets launched missiles at Libyan armoured vehicles that had been threatening civilians from Ajdabiya.
On the ground: In Misrata, western Libya, fresh fighting has been reported. One doctor said pro-Gaddafi forces had killed more than 100 people and injured 1,300 in the past week.
Further east in the strategically important city of Ajdabiya, residents described shelling, gunfire and houses on fire. One report said rebels were moving closer to the city but remained out-gunned by pro-Gaddafi forces.
