Misrata's nurses race to treat wounded rebels

Medical staff work around the clock to treat Libyan rebels injured in clashes with government forces.

    Opposition forces in Libya continue to fight government troops on several fronts, after a fresh offensive in the country's west.

    Intense fighting has been reported from the villages of Bada, al-Josh, Tiji and on the outskirts of Zlitan.

    Dead and injured fighters from Zlitan are being taken to a hospital in Misrata, where nurses work around the clock to try and save as many lives as possible.
