Shelling kills 7 rebels in Libya's Misrata:doctor

BENGHAZI, Libya April 28 (Reuters) - Seven rebel fighters in the Libyan city of Misrata were killed overnight when forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi hit their checkpoint with artillery fire and rockets, a local doctor said.

“Fifteen of our rebels at a checkpoint near the front line have been attacked by Gaddafi’s troops with heavy artillery and then with rockets,” said the doctor. “We received seven dead and four injured.” (Reporting by Michael Georgy; Writing by Christian Lowe; Editing by Matthew Jones)
