Libya: Gaddafi forces 'using cluster bombs' on Misrata


Pro-government forces in Libya have been accused by a human rights campaign group of using cluster bombs, which are banned by more than 100 countries.

Human Rights Watch said one of its photographers had seen three of the bombs explode over a residential area of the rebel-held city of Misrata - an allegation denied by Libya's government.

Abdullah, a doctor in Misrata, told the BBC he had seen evidence of cluster bombs and described some of the injuries he had treated as a result.
