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.
