Battle scars rebel-held Misurata

Signs of deadly battles for Libyan rebel holdout are everywhere, from scarred buildings to roadside rockets.

    From Grad rockets to heavy machine guns, troops loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi unleashed a massive assault on Misurata, the country's third-largest city and the most significant rebel holdout in the west.

    Inside a ripped-apart vegetable market, Gaddafi's tanks sit destroyed, not by NATO warplanes, which had difficulty striking targets in the urban environment, but by dedicated rebels wielding rocket-propelled grenades and homemade explosives.

    Al Jazeera's Tony Birtley, reporting from the city, explores the devastated remainders of Misurata.
