    Opposition fighters in western Libya are still fighting battles with government troops, and one such fight is for control of the Wazin border crossing with Tunisia.

    Many of those fighting pro-Gaddafi forces on the frontline are volunteers. They are teachers, engineers and students, and they get little training and have to learn about combat while engaging in it.

    Al Jazeera's Hoda Abdel-Hamid reports from the Wazin border crossing in the country's west.
