'Gaddafi loyalists' and Libya NTC Tripoli battle ends

A gun battle in the Libyan capital Tripoli between forces loyal to the transitional government and gunmen they say support fugitive ex-leader Col Muammar Gaddafi has now ended.

It was the first serious confrontation in Tripoli since the city fell to the forces of the National Transitional Council (NTC) in August.

Caroline Hawley reports.
