CAIRO- Government forces shelled a town in a mountainous region southwest of Libya's capital on Sunday, killing two people, Arabiya television reported, quoting an eyewitness.

"We are facing fierce attacks from the north since yesterday in the city of Yafran," Arabiya cited a resident, Ezref, as saying. "Two people have died a short while ago and so far we have four wounded."

"Residential areas have been shelled with Grad rockets," Ezref told the pan-Arab satellite channel from the town some 100 km (62 miles) southwest of Tripoli.
