The British funded aid ship the Red Star One finally docked in the Libyan port city of Misrata on Wednesday after a three day delay. The crew managed to deliver much needed aid and rescue some 800 refugees before setting off, but many others were left behind.

The Gaddafi regime is facing increased condemnation over its treatment of civilians, and the chief prosecutor for the International Criminal Court says he intends to indict three Libyans for crimes against humanity.
