BEIRUT - Libyan rebels reported heavy clashes in parts of Misrata on Wednesday, but said they were making progress against government troops in the besieged coastal city and had also captured a dozen enemy fighters.

On Misrata's western outskirts, rebels pushed pro-Gaddafi forces back a further 10 km to the town of Abu Ruwayah, 25 km from Misrata, a rebel spokesman said. It was not possible to verify the claim independently.
