    The Abu Salim trauma hospital in the Libyan capital, Tripoli, has been cut off to most of the outside world due to fighting in the area.

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Simmons managed to reach the hospital this week, where he found bodies with gunshot wounds lying in and outside of the building.

    He sent this report on the status of a hospital that is severely understaffed and cut off from medical supplies, with a warning that some of the images in the video may be disturbing.
