'Road of death' links Benghazi to Tripoli

Locals rename highway littered with remains of Gaddafi's military offensive in eastern Libya.



    Despite air strikes by an international military coalition on Libyan targets, forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi have made gains and continued to fight on. The city of Zintan was hit heavily by Gaddafi's forces and although still reportedly free, has been surrounded.

    Government soldiers also surrounded Misurata, a key rebel stronghold in western Libya. There was also fierce fighting further east in Ajdabiya. Rebel fighters were seen retreating in the face of an attack by Gaddafi forces.
