TUNIS - Forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi are attacking the Tunisian town of Dehiba, near the Libyan border, with small arms and artillery, two local residents told Reuters on Friday.

"Intense shooting is taking place now in central Dehiba. This started around two hours ago. People here cannot come out. The battle started after the (pro-Gaddafi) brigades attacked the rebels positioned in Dehiba."

A second local man, called Samy, told Reuters shells were falling on houses in Dehiba and a Tunisian woman had been killed.
