BEIRUT - Eight people were killed and 24 wounded in Misrata as forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi fired mortars while advancing towards the city from the west, a resident told Reuters on Sunday.

"A massacre has been committed. The Gaddafi forces which were trying to advance to the city fired mortars and killed at least eight," the resident, called Saadoun, said by phone.

"Twenty-four people are wounded, most of them are in critical condition, and they lost body parts. This is not final." He said the forces had been advancing from the west.
