Meet the Libyan rebels who live in the desert

Rebel forces continue to fight against Colonel Gaddafi's troops in the east of Libya, with no sign of an end to the conflict despite Nato strikes.

The city of Benghazi is a rebel stronghold, but just 100km away there is a stand off between both sides at the town of Brega.

Andrew Hosken sent this report from a nearby rebel base in the desert.
