Refugees evacuated from Misurata

Ferry turns into a makeshift hospital for thousands of Libyan civilians fleeing fighting.

    Rival forces in Libya's civil war are continuing to battle for control of the port city of Misurata.

    Despite the violence and the chaos, a rescue ship with hundreds of people escaping Misurata has managed to make its way to the rebels' base in Benghazi.

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Simmons reports from on board the ferry, which has been turned into a makeshift hospital.
