An injured rebel fighter brought directly from the frontline is initially reluctant to release his rifle to medical staff at Al Hikma hospital in Misrata, Libya, 10 June 2011. Whilst causality numbers were significantly less than they had been during months of urban fighting, a steady trickle of injured and dead continued to be delivered daily to Al HIkma, Misrata's main hospital, from the frontlines just thirty kilometres from the city.

A rebel fighter jokes as he points a rifle at the back of the head of a fellow fighter during guard duty at the media centre in Misrata, Libya, 04 June 2011. Despite the central Libyan city of Misrata being surrounded by forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi, and the lack of any mobile phone services, the media centre was a location which allowed local and foreign journalist contact with the outside world via satellite internet access.

A rebel fighter sits on a tree stump just short of the frontline at Al Dafniyeh to the west of Misrata, Libya, 26 May 2011. Despite pushing forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi out of the city centre, rebel forces made slow progress in the more open and rural areas outside of the city due in part to the dominance of heavy weapons belonging to those forces loyal to Gaddafi and in spite of NATO airstrikes.
