Libya uprising: Fierce fighting on the streets of Sirte

Heavy fighting has continued in the Libyan city of Sirte, with loyalist fighters holding out in just two small areas, anti-Gaddafi commanders say.

Forces with Libya's interim authority say 80% of the city, Col Gaddafi's home town, is now under their control.

Meanwhile, hundreds of civilians are still trying to flee the city.
