"The Gaddafi forces are shelling Misrata now. They are firing rockets and artillery rounds on the eastern side - the Nakl el Theqeel (road) and the residential areas around it," Abdubasset Abu Mzeireq said from the coastal city.
He said about 100 people were also wounded in Sunday's clashes, mostly civilians.
