CAIRO, March 19 Sat Mar 19, 2011 11:01am EDT

CAIRO, March 19 (Reuters) - A witness told Al Arabiya television on Saturday that Zintan in western Libya was being bombarded and Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's tanks were approaching the town. "Now we are being bombed in Zintan from more than one direction: from the north and the south," said the witness, who was not identified.

"There are tanks heading towards the southern entrance of Zintan, around 20 to 30 tanks, which are hitting the city and residential areas in the south," he said. (Writing by Sarah Mikhail; Editing by Matthew Jones)
