CAIRO - Libya said on Sunday it shelled the rebel-held Misrata port to stop NATO from delivering weapons to the insurgents, state television reported.

"NATO tried today (Sunday) to breach the blockade imposed by the Libyan armed forces on Misrata's port. The alliance also tried to deliver arms shipments and supplies to the armed criminal gangs using several naval vessels. But it came under heavy bombardment which forced it to flee to the see," TV said.
