BEIRUT - Libyan rebels fighting troops loyal to Muammar Gaddafi in the city of Misrata said eight of their fighters had been killed in clashes along a road leading to the rebel-controlled port on Saturday.

A rebel fighter who identified himself as Mustafa Abdulrahman also said NATO had intensified its air strikes on government forces laying siege to Libya's third city. "I have to say that the NATO forces have changed since yesterday, we are sensing a positive change. They have bombed at least four sites held by Gaddafi's forces in Misrata," he told Reuters by telephone.
