BENGHAZI, Libya - Production at rebel-held oilfields in eastern Libya has stopped after they came under attack from forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi, a rebel spokesman said on Wednesday.

Oilfields in Misla and the Waha oasis area were hit by Gaddafi's artillery on Tuesday and Wednesday, the spokesman Hafiz Ghoga told reporters in the rebel stronghold of Benghazi.

"These oilfields are the ones that pump oil to Tobruk," said Ghoga. "They stopped pumping today."
