Libya crisis: 'Morale high' among Misrata rebels

A renewed barrage of shelling by Libyan troops around Misrata on Friday has left at least 22 people dead and at least 60 wounded, according to doctors in the rebel-held city.

The BBC's David Loyn visited a hospital in Misrata on Saturday and said that morale was high among the injured fighters, who are increasing in confidence as they push forward against Col Gaddafi's forces.
