- Snipers loyal to Gaddafi have killed two people in Misurata, a resident told Reuters. \
"We have two people dead this morning ... because there are snipers on some houses and they are shooting people, they are shooting whoever they see," the resident, called Saadoun, told Reuters by telephone.
It seems that there is a media war going on between Gaddafi and rebels.
"They (Gaddafi's forces) bombed the town with four or five artillery shells in the early hours today. The situation is relatively calm now. But they are still on the outskirts of the town, and water to Misrata is still cut off," the resident, called Mohammed, told Reuters by telephone from the city.
Libyan government officials deny attacking rebels and say they are observing a ceasefire.
Reports from Misrata could not be verified independently because authorities in Tripoli have prevented journalists from reaching the city.
