Libya conflict: Interim forces regroup for Sirte push

Interim government forces in the Libyan town of Sirte have regrouped for another attempt to capture the last streets occupied by soldiers loyal to Colonel Gaddafi.

Buildings and infrastructure across the ousted leader's hometown have been damaged, but the resistance coming from the small area held by pro-Gaddafi forces has been fierce.

The BBC's Wyre Davies, reporting from Sirte, said it was difficult to see "when this is going to end.

"They're going to run out of ammunition or they're going to run out of food, because they've been holding that position for a couple of days."
