Situation 'dire' in #Libya siege town Sirte: Red Cross

MISRATA, Libya (AFP) - People are dying due to lack of basic medical care in Sirte, the Red Cross said on Saturday after it visited Muammar Gaddafi's besieged hometown and saw the hospital there hit by rockets. 'It's a dire situation,' Hichem Khadhraoui of the International Committee of the Red Cross told AFP, adding that a team he led had delivered 300 'war wounded kits' and about 150 body bags. Medical personnel at the city's Ibn Sima hospital told the Red Cross that 'because of lack of oxygen and fuel for the generator people are dying,' he said from his base in the nearby city of Misrata. Other wounded or ill people cannot get to the hospital because of the fighting and Nato airstrikes, Khadhraoui said.'Several rockets landed within the hospital buildings while we were there,' he said. 'We saw a lot of indiscriminate fire. I don't know where it was coming from.'
