Gaddafi forces continue to advance

Despite Gaddafi army's advance in east Libya, rebel forces are defiant in the streets, pledging to fight on.



    Muammar Gaddafi's forces in the east are continuing to push the rebels back, while the UN's security council has again discussed imposing a no-fly zone in the country - but with no firm outcome.

    There are conflicting reports from the town of Brega. Gaddafi forces say it is in their control but the rebels dispute that.

    But as Nick Clark reports from Libya, time is running out for a population that has a proud legacy dating back thousands of years.
