Fighting continues across Libya

Rebels fighting Gaddafi's forces in remote mountain region feel abandoned by NATO.

    NATO has extended its Libyan mission for a further 90 days, after Muammar Gaddafi made it clear he would not step down, dashing hopes of a negotiated end to the fighting.

    Fifteen weeks since Libya's conflict began it is anyone's guess who is winning. NATO's raids are helping some rebels in their push west, but others feel they have been abandoned in the mountains.
     
    The worry for thousands of Libyans right now is a lack of food, water and electricity. Some areas are fast running out of rations.
