Rare glimpse into Gaddafi forces

Exclusive footage obtained by Al Jazeera exposes the conduct of Libyan leader's army.

    The conflict in Libya has so far been reported only from one side, as no press was allowed to cover Libyan leader's forces on the battleground.

    But Al Jazeera has now obtained an exclusive footage which offers a rare glimpse into the conduct of Muammar Gaddafi's forces.

    Filmed in mid-March, the video shows government army pushing forward to crush the uprising in the east before NATO received the green light to launch airstrikes.

    The footage shows young men being taken into custody and beaten up by Gaddafi loyalists as government forces roam the streets of Ajdabiya.
