Misurata bears brunt of Libya battles

Fighting between Gaddafi forces and rebels has taken heavy toll on Libyan city.

    The rebel-held western city of Misurata has seen much of the violence between forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi and opposition fighters.

    The rebels now say they have driven out all of Gaddafi's troops - but some remain as prisoners.

    Tony Birtley reports from Misurata on the scale of destruction.
