Libya: Gaddafi's forces continue to defy resolution

Fighting between Col Gaddafi's forces and the rebels continued on Tuesday, despite the declaration of a ceasefire by the government.

The American Admiral leading the international operation to enforce a no-fly zone says Gaddafi's forces are still attacking civilians and the coalition is 'considering all options' in light of those attacks.

Libyan government spokesman Moussa Ibrahim said Monday's air and missile strikes had caused "numerous" civilian casualties, especially at the "civilian airport" in Sirte.

Meanwhile, the rebels have advanced to Ajdabiya where they met with Col Gaddafi's forces, as Allan Little reports.
