Libyan mortar rounds land near Tunisia border town

TATAOUINE, Tunisia - More than a dozen mortar rounds fired from Libya landed near the Tunisian border town of Dehiba on Thursday, a Tunisian security source said, as Libyan government troops fought rebels in the Western Mountains.
A resident of Dehiba said one of the mortar rounds landed near a reservoir supplying the town with drinking water. Artillery fire from Libya has landed in or near Dehiba several times in the past week, as forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi try to wrest control of a key border post from rebels.
