Rebel-held Misrata readies for fresh onslaught


There are conflicting reports regarding the situation in Misrata, the last big rebel stronghold in western Libya.

Residents in the city, some 200 kilometres from Tripoli, say they are preparing for a new attack after the government said its forces would retake the city within hours.

Loyalist forces launched an attack on Wednesday on Misrata, but rebels said they fought back and seized some tanks from the pro-Gaddafi units

A doctor at a local hospital said at least 18 people have been killed with more than 40 others wounded.
