Three months on, Gaddafi defiant

Libyan leader clings to power as uprising against him enters fourth month.

    It is three months since pro-democracy protesters first clashed with security forces in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi.

    But NATO airstrikes and weeks of fierce fighting on a fluctuating frontline in the east of the country, and around the rebel-held besieged city of Misurata in the west, have failed to achieve the protesters' main aim: the toppling of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

    Al Jazeera's Mike Hanna reports from the rebels' eastern stronghold, Benghazi.
