Pro-Gaddafi forces shell Misrata district-resident

TUNIS, April 11 (Reuters) - Forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi shelled a residential area in Misrata on Monday, a resident quoted a witness living there as saying.

“Pro-Gaddafi forces are now shelling Al Bira, a rebel-held area near Tripoli street in the city centre, using heavy artillery,” Misrata resident Ghassan said by phone. “One witness told us that some 140 shells landed in the area and the shelling goes on.” (Reporting by Joseph Nasr; Writing by Marie-Louise Gumuchian; editing by Tim Pearce)
