The International Committee of the Red Cross has sent 10 tonnes of aid from Malta to help the wounded in Tripoli.

The Greek-flagged ship is one of the first to arrive in Tripoli since Libyan rebels invaded the capital. The aid includes hygiene parcels, drugs and baby diapers and water from the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund.

Distribution will begin on Monday. Hospitals in Tripoli are overwhelmed by casualties with gunshot and rocket wounds. Some hospitals such as Abu Salim have ceased to operate. The majority of the capital's residents are short of water and food.
