RABAT - Libya's Foreign Ministry declared a ceasefire in Misrata on Monday, the Libyan news agency said, referring to the western town where rebels earlier said government forces gained control of part of the city.

"The Foreign Ministry ... announces that anti-terrorism units have stopped firing at the armed terrorist groups that have been terrorizing," the Jana agency quoted the ministry as saying.

"The city of Misrata now enjoys security and tranquility and public services have started to recover their ability to provide customary services to all citizens."

"The Foreign Ministry thus emphasizes Libya's commitment to the ceasefire: it stands."
