Located in western Libya, Misurata has become the most dramatic battleground in the country's uprising, which began in February.

But there has been confusion - while Colonel Muammar Gadaffi's forces announced a withdrawl from the city on Friday, they have continued to bombard it.

Inside Story discusses with guests: Faraj Najem, a Libyan author and historian; Mohammed Ali Abdallah, the deputy secretary-general of the National Front for the Salvation of Libya; and Hesham Jaber, a military analyst.

This episode of Inside Story aired on Sunday, April 24, 2011.
