Libya: Gun fight inside Col Gaddafi's compound

Fighting is continuing in Tripoli as pro and anti-Gaddafi forces battle inside Col Muammar Gaddafi's Bab al-Aziziya compound in the capital.

Col Gaddafi's whereabouts are still unknown but he used a radio address to urge to supporters to fight on.

Gunfire was heard close to Tripoli's Rixos Hotel, where 35 foreign nationals, mostly journalists, have been confined by Gaddafi loyalists.

The BBC's Wyre Davies reports from the compound in Tripoli.
