    Muammar Gaddafi may be fighting hard to regain control of Libya, but people in the eastern city of Benghazi, the bastion of the uprising, say they will not give up their aspirations to wrest the country from his grip.

    From religious leaders to people on the street, they say they are keeping up the fight. Yet the price Libyans are paying for their uprising is high and the death toll is rising every day, even in this revolutionary stronghold.

    With Gaddafi unlikely to step down willingly, people in Benghazi told Al Jazeera's Tony Birtley that they hope the international community will intervene.
