ALGIERS - Forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi halted their bombardment of the port in the city of Misrata on Monday after NATO air strikes, but the port is still closed, a rebel spokesman told Reuters.

"There were strikes by NATO on the outskirts of the city today at around midday (1000 GMT)," the spokesman, called Reda, told Reuters by telephone. "The port is still closed. Gaddafi's forces bombarded it earlier today. The bombardment has now stopped."
