Tripoli remains Col Gaddafi's main stronghold as he attempts to reassert control over rebels who have taken much of the east of the country.

However, Tajoura - a working class suburb on the outskirts of the capital - has become a focus of anti-government sentiment, according to BBC correspondents.

Volleys of gunfire - described as celebratory by state TV - were heard around the capital over the weekend.
