The rebel-held city of Misurata, in western Libya, was the focal point of the conflict between pro- and anti-government forces just weeks ago, but a fragile peace has now descended.

As citizens attempt to get back to their normal daily routine, however, the conflict remains on their doorstep, with Grad rocket attacks from pro-government forces on certain neighbourhoods still occuring regularly.

Al Jazeera's Tony Birtley reports from Misurata.
