The fight for Ajdabiya

The strategic town in Libya has changed hands several times and many were killed for its struggle.

    The fighting has been continuing around Ajdabiya in the eastern part of Libya.

    Rebels said they have now re-taken control of the area, but it has come at a heavy price as many lives were lost in the city that has borne the brunt of the constantly shifting frontlines.

    Al Jazeera's Sue Turton reports from outside the city.
