Libya: battles rage for control of coastal cities

Text size Aa Aa

Some two thousand people are estimated to have been died during ten days of violence in Libya.

Misrata, the country’s third largest city, is a cargo port with a population of several hundred thousand people.

Residents say they are in control of the city and have successfully beaten back a recent counter-attack by pro-Gaddafi forces.

Other reports, however, say suspected African mercenaries are regrouping in some parts of the city and providing fierce resistance.
