Libya's government has claimed that NATO's bombing campaign has killed 718 Libyan civilians and injured more than 4,000 others. NATO has denied killing large numbers of civilians, and reporters have not been able to verify the figures.

Meanwhile, rebels are slowly making gains on the capital Tripoli. They are approaching westwards from the city of Misrata along a chain of towns where there is growing opposition to Muammar Gaddafi. By day, the three towns of Zlitan, Khoms and Garabulli are under government control.

But locals claim at night, residents spray graffiti on walls and hoist rebel flags. Libyan officials had previously denied there is any anti-Gaddafi unrest in areas under government control.
