Human cost of Libya battle rises

Al Jazeera speaks to some of the relatives of the young men who have been killed in fighting.

    There are growing concerns in Libya that the battle has reached a stalemate, and many are calling for NATO to do more. 

    As the fighting continues, African Union (AU) leaders say they are determined to end the fighting and have met with both Muammar Gaddafi and rebel leaders.

    The European Union has sent out an appeal to Gaddafi supporters, asking them to join the democracy movement in the country.

    But with no signs of an immediate ceasefire, the human cost of the battle continues to rise.
