Anti-Gaddafi forces in Libya are regrouping for fresh attacks on loyalist strongholds Sirte and Bani Walid.

Fighters have faced fierce resistance from troops loyal to Col Muammar Gaddafi in his home town of Sirte.

The BBC's Alastair Leithead, with National Transitional Council forces on the road to Sirte, said that progress was slow but steady.
