Misurata, the rebel-held western Libyan city, has been besieged by pro-government forces for more than two months now and public  frustration there is boiling over.

Thousands are said to have been killed and wounded by Muammar Gaddafi's bombardment in the country's third largest city amid growing shortages of basic food and medical supplies.

Even Misurata's port - which is their only channel to the outside world - has suffered heavy shelling, preventing much-needed aid from reaching them.
