TRIPOLI - Libya's army fired volleys of rockets at the rebel-held town of Zintan in the Western Mountains, pressing on with a campaign that has created a humanitarian crisis and forced thousands to flee the country.

Rebels said more than 40 Grad rockets hit Zintan late on Tuesday, and aid to the western port of Misrata was hindered by artillery fire and mines near the harbor entrance. The city has become one of the bloodiest battlefields in the two-month war.

Rebel spokesmen said fighting had flared again in Misrata's eastern suburbs, but that intense air strikes by NATO planes appeared to have won the port, the city's lifeline, a respite in shelling by Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's forces.
