Gaddafi forces bombard rebel-held Zintan – rebels

Forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi bombarded the rebel-held town of Zintan in the Western Mountains with over 40 Grad rockets late on Tuesday, a rebel spokesman said.

“They were fired in two salvoes,” the spokesman, named Abdulrahman, said by telephone. “The last salvo landed moments ago. We can hear NATO aircraft overhead now.”

A Libyan ambulance driver from Zintan who crossed into Tunisia on Tuesday told Reuters the town had come under intense shelling by pro-Gaddafi forces.
