Odds test rebels in eastern Libya

They are up against Gaddafi's formidable forces but have very little to fight with.

     

    Rebel forces in eastern Libya say Muammar Gaddafi's troops are beefing up their presence, and there’s a sense of frustration that the fighters have to do a lot with very little.

    They claim the army has deployed anti-tank guided missile systems.

    For the past month, the opposition has not allowed any media into Ajdabiya.

    But Al Jazeera was given exclusive access - Mike Hanna reports from eastern Libya.
