Tripoli: A tale of two cities in Libyan capital

Arrest warrants have been issued for the Libyan leader Colonel Gaddafi and two of his closest allies for alleged crimes against humanity.

The decision was made by the International Criminal Court at the Hague.

It comes as rebel forces claim they are making advances in the west of the country and are battling with Gaddafi's troops less than fifty miles from the capital, Tripoli.

It has been 100 days since Britain became involved in military air strikes on Libya.

Jeremy Bowen has been gauging the impact in Tripoli.
