TRIPOLI- At least 18 people, including a baby, were killed in fighting between forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and rebels in the town of Misrata on Sunday, a doctor told Reuters by phone.

"We have 18 martyrs but the figure is not final. We also have many people wounded, I cannot even count them," said the doctor, who works at Misrata main hospital.

He said the dead included rebels and civilians.
