Wounded civilian toll rises in Libya conflict

Help

Rebels in Libya say they are continuing to fight for control of the strategic town of Zlitan, west of the city of Misrata.

Doctors in Misrata say more than 8,000 people have been wounded since the uprising began in February and 3,000 of those are thought to be civilians.

Four months ago the BBC reported on a six-year-old girl who had been badly injured when her home came under attack.

Orla Guerin returned to Misrata to find her.
