Gaddafi's forces bombard east Libya town outskirts

AJDABIYAH, Libya, April 12 (Reuters) - Forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi bombarded the western entrance to the rebel-held town of Ajdabiyah in eastern Libya on Tuesday, a Reuters witness reported.

The witness reported about eight blasts, apparently from artillery, around the western entrance. Ajdabiyah, which sits on a junction of routes that lead into the rebel-held east, has been a focus of fierce battles in the past two months.
