BEIRUT - Western air strikes hit
government tanks on the outskirts of Libya's rebel-held Misrata
late on Wednesday but tanks inside the city remain there and
have not been hit, a resident told Reuters by telephone.
Forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi seized control
of Misrata's port on Wednesday, stranding thousands of Egyptian
and sub-Saharan African migrant workers, who were seeking
evacuation by sea, the resident said.
