RABAT- Hundreds of besieged Misrata residents took to the streets on Thursday in defiance of persistent artillery and sniper attacks by forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi, live footage on Al Jazeera television showed.

They gathered near a mosque in the town's Kasr Ahmad district, into where government forces had earlier fired a barrage of Russian-made Grad rockets. Rebels said 23 civilians were killed in the dawn assault.

"The blood of martyrs will not be in vain," the crowd chanted as some waved the flag of rebel-held Libya.



It was not immediately possible to verify the images' authenticity.
