Libyan fighters defiant despite mounting toll
In Libya, there are growing concerns that the battle has reached a stalemate, and many are calling for NATO to do more. As the fighting continues, African Union (AU) leaders have met with both Muammar Gaddafi and rebel leaders. The AU says it is determined to end the fighting in Libya. And the European Union has sent out an appeal to Gaddafi supporters, asking them to join the democracy movement in the country. But with no signs of an immediate ceasefire, the human cost of the battle continues to rise. Al Jazeera's Hoda Abdel Hamid spoke to some of the relatives of the young men who've been killed.
