Libya's Colonel Gaddafi defiant after air raids

Colonel Gaddafi and his supporters remain defiant after a night of attacks by international forces on Libya.

The road from Benghazi to Ajdabiya was among the areas targeted by the strikes, in a bid to hold back government troops.

Rebels welcomed the intervention, but Gaddafi loyalists have surrounded his compound to show their support for the Libyan leader.
