Libyan rebels' homemade rockets

Opposition fighters use makeshift weapons, including homemade missile launcher, to repel Gaddafi troops.

    Libya's opposition fighters say they have retaken the town of Qwalish in the western Nafusa Mountains, which they lost to Gaddafi forces a day earlier.

    Rebels are using a homemade missile launcher - coupled with missiles seized from a Government arms dump - to attempt to stop the advance of the Libyan leader's troops.

    No civilians currently live in Qwalish, but both sides continue to fight for the area, as the road leads from the mountains directly towards Tripoli.
