Image 1 of 18


On Oct. 17, revolutionary fighters run across the street under heavy sniper fire carrying Bangladeshi children who were trapped in Sirte, Libya, during the entire siege of the city. About 1,000 Libyan revolutionary troops launched a major assault on Muammar Qaddafi's hometown, surging from the east to try to capture the last area under loyalist control.
