John Simpson reports from Libya's 'front line'

Libyan leader Col Gaddafi's forces have launched air strikes on the oil terminal town of Brega, sources in the town said.

The strikes come a day after clashes between rebels and government troops in the town in which 14 people died.

The BBC's John Simpson has been to Al-Aqaylah in central Libya. He says it is 'not like the normal front line of a war zone'.
