The Libyan leader's forces have been accused of using sexual assault against women as a weapon of war.

A psychiatrist in the Libyan city of Benghazi has told an Arabic TV Channel that she was aware of over two hundred cases of rape but has yet to provide documentary evidence.

And doctors in towns and villages still occupied by Muammar Gaddafi's soldiers have called colleagues in Benghazi to report more cases of rape and abuse.

Al Jazeera's Sue Turton reports from Benghazi.
