Libyan anti-government soldiers are reportedly being tortured and executed in an underground prison in Muammar Gaddafi's hometown of Sirte. This allegation comes from an escaped prisoner who says men were executed by firing squad.

More and more stories are emerging of abuse and suffering at the hands of the Gaddafi forces.

It has provoked people in Ajdabiya to call for NATO to increase their air strikes in the hope they could bring an end to the conflict.
