    Heavy shelling in Libya's capital has forced residents of the neighbourhoods around Mitiga airport to live a suspended life.

    This is the latest round of fighting after talks at the UN failed to reach an agreement.

    Many Libyans from both sides of the conflict are angry at the UN, saying that it has not done enough to help.
