As President Obama signals what he hopes to be the beginning of the end of the war in Afghanistan, the NATO-led conflict in Libya rumbles on.

Colonel Moammar Gadhafi issued a defiant audio message late yesterday, saying he had his "back to the wall" but did not fear death, and the battle against what he called the western "crusaders" would continue "to the beyond." The BBC's Jeremy Bowen reports from Tripoli.

This segment aired on June 23, 2011.
