Government forces in Libya have regrouped for a new push to capture Sirte, where soldiers loyal to Col Gaddafi are still holding out in the former leader's hometown.
The National Transitional Government's forces have control of the centre of the city and have surrounded the Gaddafi loyalists, but have struggled to hold on to their gains.
