    Forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi are being hemmed into an ever decreasing area of the ousted Libyan leader's home town of Sirte.

    They are surrounded in the heart of the city, being pounded by rockets, mortar shells and tank fire as National Transitional Council fighters press forward from the west, east and south.

    But still, the loyalists continue to fiercely defend the seat of Gaddafi's family and tribe.
