RABAT - An assault by government troops on the city of Misrata killed at least 30 rebels on Saturday, a rebel spokesman said, citing fellow fighters and medics.

"Today they (forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi) attacked Misrata on three fronts. Medical workers and rebels told me that at least 30 rebel fighters were killed in Misrata today," said the spokesman, who identified himself as Abdelsalem.

"The rebels, however, managed to fight back and prevent them from making progress," he added.
