BEIRUT - Forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi have been shelling the rebel-held city of Misrata since early Monday morning, a rebel spokesman said.

"The shelling started in the early hours of the morning and it's continuing, using mortars and artillery. This is pure terrorism. The shelling is targeting residential areas. We know there are casualties but I don't know how many," the spokesman, called Gemal, told Reuters by telephone.
