Doctor in Tripoli 'saw many bodies in a truck'


Fighting between rebels and pro-Gaddafi forces is continuing in parts of Tripoli, a day after the fugitive leader's compound was taken.

Moez, a British junior doctor helping provide medical aid at a hospital in the east of the city, told the BBC a truck had arrived containing "about 25 bodies... apparently there are 200 more bodies on their way".

"There's a very heavy load on all of the hospitals in terms of medical staffing... supplies... equipment. Everybody's just trying to do their best."
