This fighter is clearly keeping calm amidst the fierce battle to take control of the Libyan town of Sirte, one of the last strongholds of fugitive leader Muammar Gaddafi.
As he stands surrounded by gunmen in front of a pock-marked wall, the area around his feet strewn with bullet casings, the man seems to be simply playing his guitar while his comrades attempt to gain ground from pro-Gaddafi forces.
The striking image comes as speculation mounts that Gaddafi could gain safe passage through Niger to Mali - where he reportedly has a house in the town of Timbuktu.

Battle song: The soldier carries on playing amidst a fierce gunfight on the streets of Sirte.
