There is growing concern on the streets of Benghazi; there is talk of spies and infiltrators, of sleeper cells loyal to leader Muammar Gaddafi waiting to be activated.

Eastern Libya is awash with rumours and uncertainty. What happens here really depends on what happens in the battle zones less than 400km away.

The mood of the opposition remains one of confidence. It may be that the rebellion is settling in for the long haul.
