The World

Meanwhile, Libyan rebels are warning of an imminent blood bath in the city of Misurata if NATO does not intensify their air attacks. Thursday, Col. Moammar Gaddhafi rode around around Tripoli in a convertible, defiantly waving his fists at the allied forces.  What is the way forward for NATO and is its latest combat mission a reflection of how little it can do to with such a divided force? Borzou Daragahi, Middle East correspondent for The Los Angeles Times has been reporting from Libya.
