Libya conflict: Rebels claim advances in Sirte battle
The BBC's Alastair Leithead: "The big guns are marching slowly but steadily towards Sirte"

Libya's interim government forces say they have made progress in their attack on Sirte, a stronghold of forces loyal to Col Muammar Gaddafi.

However, the advance has been slow and there is fierce resistance from loyalist forces.

There are also reports of heavy fighting in another Gaddafi stronghold, the town of Bani Walid.
