Libya crisis: Misrata celebrates among the ruins

The International Criminal Court's chief prosecutor is seeking the arrest of Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi and two others for crimes against humanity.

Luis Moreno-Ocampo said Col Gaddafi, his son Saif al-Islam, and intelligence chief Abdullah al-Sanussi bore the greatest responsibility for "widespread and systematic attacks" on civilians.

The city of Misrata is at the heart of the allegations, with reports that hundreds of civilians have been killed.

BBC Africa correspondent Andrew Harding - the only Western television journalist currently in the besieged city - reports on reactions to the news among its residents.
