BEIRUT - Forces loyal to Libya's Muammar Gaddafi are shelling the rebel-held port in the city of Misrata where an aid ship is trying to unload, a rebel spokesman said on Sunday.

"They are using Grad rockets, targeting the port directly. There is an aid ship right now trying to empty its cargo," the spokesman, Ahmed Hassan, told Reuters by telephone. He said he did not know which organization was operating the aid vessel.
