Libya crisis: Rebels ambush Gaddafi loyalists

Video of a car driven by pro-Gaddafi forces attacked by a rebel patrol shows just how much pressure the loyalists are under.

The footage, filmed on Monday, shows the car stopped by heavy machine-gun fire as it attempts a quick U-turn.

Both men attempted to run, but when one was shot the second thought better of the idea. Both survived.

Paul Wood reports from near Sirte.
