ALGIERS, April 11 (Reuters) - Forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi were on Monday firing Russian-made Grad rockets at targets in the city of Misrata, a rebel spokesman in the city told Reuters.

"There was shelling this morning with Grads," the spokesman, called Ali, said by telephone. Asked whether the bombardment was still going on he answered: "Yes." The line was then cut off. (Reporting by Hamid Ould Ahmed; Writing by Christian Lowe; Editing by David Stamp)
