Women flee Libya fighting

Dozens seeking refuge with little children and the elderly describe their plight before fleeing the fighting.

    Many Libyan women left their menfolk behind in Ajdabiya to fight against Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's forces.

    Some of them who fled to Benghazi alleged that Gaddafi's troops kidnapped children and the elderly to be used as human shields.
