Fighters bring battle to Libya's Sirte

Battle for Libyan hearts continues as wounded fill hospitals after Gaddafi stronghold lets amnesty deadline lapse.

    Fighting is raging as NTC fighters seek to wrest control of Muammar Gaddafi's hometown of Sirte -- one of the last outposts for the former Libyan leader's loyalists.

    As a deadline expired for Gaddafi's forces in Sirte to surrender, the wounded started pouring into a nearby hospital.

    Al Jazeera's Hoda Abdel-Hamid reports from near the town.
