TUNIS - Libyan rebels have killed 30 government snipers in the town of Misrata and government warships and boats that were in the town's port have now gone, a rebel spokesman said on Thursday.

"There were clashes today and our fighters managed to find a way to reach the snipers on rooftops and killed thirty of them," rebel spokesman Abdulbasset Abu Mzereiq said by telephone.

"They have also managed to make the movement of those left very difficult because they went to the buildings they are positioned on and blew up the stairs of the building so now they are stuck."
