Foreign reporters trapped in Libya hotel

Heavily armed Gaddafi loyalists are refusing to let journalists leave Rixos hotel in Tripoli.


    Around 40 foreigners - most of them journalists - are trapped inside the Rixos hotel in Tripoli.

    They are being guarded by gunmen loyal to Muammar Gaddafi and are unable to leave the hotel to cover the latest events.

    Meanwhile, there have been reports of machine gun fire on the streets surrounding the hotel.
