Libya Protests: Growing pressure on Gaddafi regime

Security forces and protesters have clashed in Libya's capital for a second night, after the government announced a new crackdown.

Witnesses say warplanes have fired on protesters in Tripoli.

Journalists are banned from Libya but the BBC's correspondent in Tripoli sent this anonymous report.
