  • Battle continues for Libya's Misurata
    [quote]Libya's opposition fighters are battling Muammar Gaddafi's forces on the country's western border, while fighting continues in the besieged city of Misurata.

    Pro-democracy forces said the Libyan army withdrew from central Misurata, but fierce fighting was still ongoing for control of the city's port on Wednesday.

    "Gaddafi's forces retreated from the port area where they were positioned yesterday after air strikes
    by the NATO forces. The strikes completely destroyed 37 military vehicles," an opposition spokesman, called Reda, told the Reuters news agency.

    "Gaddafi's forces this morning started bombarding an area about 10km north of the city. It is known as the Steel area.

    "The bombardment is still going on. They are using Grad missiles ... Warplanes are flying over Misurata's outskirts but I don't hear any sound of strikes," he said by telephone.
