Revolutionary fighters run across the street under heavy sniper fire on October 17, carrying Bangladeshi children who were trapped in Sirte, Libya, during the entire siege of the city. Revolutionary fighters pushed hard on Monday to clear the remaining pockets of resistance in Sirte but their efforts to advance were hampered severely by the well trained snipers still loyal to the Gadhafi regime.
