DAFNIYA, Libya - Four rebel fighters were killed on Sunday when their positions west of the city of Misrata came under artillery fire from troops loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, a Reuters reporter said.

The reporter, at a field hospital near the front line, said he saw the dead and wounded being brought to the hospital in the backs of pick-up trucks.

"Gaddafi's army came forward about one kilometer (mile), they were trying to come to our side, and we are defending the position. That's why we are taking casualties," said rebel fighter Mohammed Ahmed.
