DEHIBA, Tunisia May 1 (Reuters) - Artillery fire from forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi landed in the Tunisian border town of Dehiba on Sunday, a Reuters correspondent in the town said.

The correspondent said most of the shells landed in the outskirts of the town, where there are only a few houses. There were no reports of any casualties. Pro-Gaddafi forces have been fighting rebels on the Libyan side of the border. (Reporting by Tarek Amara; Writing by Christian Lowe; Editing by Janet Lawrence)
