GENEVA - Libya's interim government has asked the United Nations for fuel for ambulances to evacuate wounded from the besieged city of Sirte, a UN source in Libya said on Thursday.

Meanwhile desperate civilians were fleeing the coastal city, held by fighters loyal to deposed leader Muammar Gaddafi, before dawn when pro-Gaddafi forces start guarding checkpoints, the source told Reuters.

The United Nations is sending trucks of clean drinking water for the increasing flow of civilians crammed into vehicles on the road from Sirte, heading either towards Benghazi in the west or Misrata in the east, he said.
