Libya crisis: Rebels take Misrata airport

Anti-government forces in Libya say they have taken control of the airport in the western city of Misrata. They say they've seized some tanks abandoned by retreating forces.

A doctor in Misrata - who is not being named for personal security reasons - told the BBC about the latest fighting in the city.
