Libya Rebels on Front Lines Ask When NATO Will Help Them Advance

Skirmishing with Libyan government forces is taking a toll on rebel fighters at Dafniya, on the eastern front line near Misrata, as NATO warplanes pummel the capital, Tripoli.

Forces loyal to leader Muammar Qaddafi, who have pulled back from Misrata, fire mortars and GRAD rockets in a daily exchange with the rebels at Dafniya. Accompanying the bombardment is an infantry attack.
