Libyan government forces have launched artillery attacks on the western entrance to the rebel-held town of Ajdabiyah.
This follows clashes overnight, which reportedly left three anti-Gadaffi fighters dead.
The town has been the scene of fierce battles over the past two months.
In Misrata there are grave concerns over the humanitarian situation and the safety of civilians, as Gadaffi’s forces continues to bombard the rebel town with heavy weapons.
Libya’s state-run TV claims a NATO air strike on the town of Kikla, south of the capital Tripoli, killed a number of civilians and police officers.
The attack was described as “a bombardment by the crusaders.”
Reports are difficult to confirm as journalists are unable to operate freely in western Libya.
