Libya: Gaddafi forces accused of using rape as weapon

The International Criminal Court's chief prosecutor says there is evidence that Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi ordered the rape of hundreds of women as a weapon against rebel forces.

Luis Moreno-Ocampo said rape was a new aspect of Colonel Gaddafi's repression and was also looking at possible evidence that pro-Gaddafi security forces had been given medication such as Viagra to enhance their sex drive.

Meanwhile Libyan rebels have made their first determined attempt to move out of their enclave in the western city of Misrata, as Daniel Griffiths reports.
