A witness in Misrata said the town is under control of anti-Gaddafi protesters, who have been fighting off counter-attacks from pro-government forces.

The source told the Reuters news agency that battles for Misrata’s military airbase started last night and are continuing, though the protesters are said to hold a large part of the base where there is ammunition.

Rebels are also reported to have shot-down a military aircraft and captured the crew as it was firing on a radio station in the city.
