The charred remains of an injured rebel fighter is covered with blankets as it lies on the back of a truck hit by a mortar in the city of Misrata. In February 2011 Libya descended into civil war. Protests in Benghazi escalated into a rebellion against Colonel Muammar Gaddafi and his forces. During the conflict, the coastal city of Misrata saw some of the worst fighting as it fell victim to daily assaults and constant shelling from Gaddafi's army.
