Libya rebels long-range battle for Sirte

There are still several pockets of pro-Gaddafi resistance in Libya.

National Transitional Council forces have moved into position around Bani Walid, 150km (95 miles) south-east of the capital Tripoli.

Bani Walid is one of four towns and cities still controlled by Gaddafi forces.

The others are Jufra, Sabha and Col Gaddafi's birthplace in Sirte.

The BBC's Paul Wood reports from outside the town of Sirte.
