Heavy fighting breaks out in Misrata suburb

MISRATA, Libya - Rebels and forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi engaged in fierce fighting on the Western outskirts of the city of Misrata on Friday, a Reuters reporter said.
The reporter said he could see white puffs of smoke and dust from where mortars fired by pro-Gaddafi forces were landing.
The rebels responded by firing back with rockets and heavy machine guns, shouting "Allahu Akbar!", or "God is Greatest!", after each volley.
