    Opposition forces in Libya continue to fight government troops on several fronts, after a fresh offensive in the country's west.

    Intense fighting has been reported from the villages of Bada, al-Josh, Tiji and on the outskirts of Zlitan.

    Dead and injured fighters from Zlitan are being taken to a hospital in Misrata, where nurses work around the clock to try and save as many lives as possible.
