The fighting has been continuing around Ajdabiya in the eastern part of Libya.

Rebels said they have now re-taken control of the area, but it has come at a heavy price as many lives were lost in the city that has borne the brunt of the constantly shifting frontlines.

Al Jazeera's Sue Turton reports from outside the city.
