Libya pro-democracy fighters brace for attacks by forces loyal to Gaddafi, as they try to hold the city.

    Pro-democracy fighters in Libya are preparing for fresh attacks by forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

    After making gains over the last week with the help of international air strikes, they are struggling to hold back Gaddafi's army in its push to take back rebel-held territory.

    Al Jazeera's Sue Turton reports from outside the town of Brega, where the fighting is fierce.
