Fierce fighting is continuing near the western Libyan city of Misurata, where forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi are once again using rockets to target opposition fighters.

A ground rocket hitting close to an opposition position is now part of a regular exchange of fire in the area. Even though the opposition is outgunned, their morale is high.
