    There is a drive to try and unite all the rebel forces in Libya under one "national army".

    But progress has been slow over the past four months and has raised questions about whether the patchwork of rebel forces can achieve its ultimate goal of removing Muammar Gaddafi.

    Former government officers are now the trainers responsible for readying rebel fighters for battle. And as the opposition heads towards Tripoli, the pressure on them is increasing.
