Gaddafi forces strike rebel-held Zintan - rebels

TUNIS (Reuters) - Forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi shelled the rebel-held town of Zintan in the Western Mountains Monday evening, resuming an assault after NATO air strikes overnight, a rebel spokesman said.

The spokesman, Abdulrahman, said at least 10 Grad rockets landed on the town. “They were fired by Gaddafi forces position north of Zintan,” he told Reuters by telephone.
