RABAT, June 10 (Reuters) - Muammar Gaddafi’s forces on Friday shelled the town of Gadamis, 600 km southwest of Tripoli, for the first time since a February uprising against his rule, a rebel spokesman said.
“Gadamis is being shelled by Gaddafi forces, according to witnesses in the town,” spokesman Juma Ibrahim said from the rebel-held town of Zintan in the Western Mountains region.
“This is a retaliation to anti-regime protests that happened on Wednesday,” he said.
The account could not be independently verified.
