Libya crisis: Food and fuel fears in Tripoli

Living conditions in Tripoli are becoming increasingly desperate, with most of Libya's capital without water, electricity or proper sanitation.

Hospitals are running short of stocks, and food and fuel are difficult to come by, reporters say.

The National Transitional Council (NTC) has said that fuel to power electricity and water supplies will arrive on Sunday but warned the people of the city not to expect "miracles" in the early days of the post-Gaddafi era.
