Misurata's call for arms

Rebel commanders in the Libyan port city say they are in desperate need of weapons and ammunition.

    Muammar Gaddafi, the Libyan leader, has threatened retaliation against Europe - warning of stinging attacks like "locusts and bees".

    Gaddafi said that Europe could face a "catastrophe" unless NATO ceases operations in his country.

    He also urged supporters to retrieve weapons that France says it has supplied in rebel-held areas.

    Al Jazeera's Sue Turton reports from Misurata, where the rebels say they're in desperate need of more foreign military assistance.
