Gadhafi unleashes rocket barrage on rebel city
Gadhafi unleashes rocket barrage on rebel city
Karin Laub And Diaa Hadid, Associated Press

TRIPOLI, Libya Moammar Gadhafi's forces unleashed a barrage of shells and rockets at Misrata on Sunday in an especially bloody weekend, countering Libyan government claims that the army was holding its fire into the western city.

Despite the barrage, which doctors say killed 32 and wounded dozens in two days, rebels said they drove the last pro-government forces from the center of Libya's third-largest city. Morale among Gadhafi's troops fighting in Misrata has collapsed, with some abandoning their posts, said one captured Libyan soldier.

The battle for Misrata, which has claimed hundreds of lives in the past two months, has become the focal point of Libya's armed rebellion against Gadhafi since fighting elsewhere is deadlocked.

Video of Misrata civilians being killed and wounded by Gadhafi's heavy weapons, including Grad rockets and tank shells, have spurred calls for more forceful international intervention to stop the bloodshed in the rebel-held city.

2. Ahhh. You are being too hard on Qaddafi. Some on DU feel that he is just misunderstood, and
standing up against the evil West to prevent theft of his oil. Anything to not see Qaddafi as the blood thirsty bastard that he is.
