TUNIS - Forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi renewed bombardment of Misrata on Tuesday and casualties were seen being taken to hospital, an Amnesty International researcher in the western Libyan city said.

"They were shelling very close by, in the area slightly to the northwest of the center ... I just left the hospital, there were casualties coming in," Donatella Rovera said by phone.

"These are the areas which are, for now, in the hands of the opposition and they are being shelled by Gaddafi forces," she told Reuters.

"The city center is the front line."
