Gaddafi forces renew attack on Libya’s third largest city

Cairo/Benghazi, Libya – Forces loyal to Libyan leader Moamer Gaddafi were trying to push their way into the centre of Misurata city with some 25 tanks, a member of Libya’s opposition said on Friday.

Misurata, located 210 kilometres east of Tripoli, is the third largest city in the country.

Sadoun, a member of the February 17 revolution media committee, told Al Jazeera broadcaster that Gaddafi tanks were firing at the city since the early morning and that there is an increasing number of victims.

He said the forces might try to take civilian residents as a human shield against any possible air attacks by foreign forces.
