    Opposition fighters in Libya have over the last two days been attempting to get more organised, but continue to face difficulties inherent in their lack of training and equipment. Their commanders say they are enthusiastic, but unskilled, and lack understanding of basic military strategy.

    Al Jazeera's James Bays met some of the fighters near Ajdabiya, in eastern Libya.
