Journalists see damage and pro-Gaddafi demo in Misrata

Misrata is one of the key battlefields of the Libyan uprising.

The rebels took control of it 40 days ago and have held it ever since, besieged by pro-Gaddafi forces.

The government claims there is now a ceasefire despite pictures showing damage to the town.

BBC World Affairs Editor John Simpson, escorted by Libyan officials, reports from near Misrata.
