US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday slammed Libyan leader Muammar Gaddifi in what she called continued "brutal attacks" by his forces on Libyan civilians.

Her comments came after after there were reports of "renewed atrocities," including the firing of mortar and artillery rounds into residential areas of Misrata.

Clinton said in a statement that Gaddafi's forces have "reportedly destroyed crucial food supply warehouses in an apparent bid to starve them into submission."

"In recent days, we have received disturbing reports of renewed atrocities conducted by Gaddifi's forces," Clinton said.
