A warplane has been shot down over the Libyan city of Benghazi.
Sustained bombing has rocked the rebel stronghold today, while reports suggest Muammar Gaddafi's forces have entered the city.
Libya declared a unilateral ceasefire yesterday after the United Nations Security Council authorised a no-fly zone over the country.
United States President Barack Obama has warned that Gaddafi faces military action if the ceasefire is not respected.
Leaders from Britain, the US, France and Arab countries are due to meet in Paris to discuss military action.
United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon says the world must speak with one voice on Libya.
