Gaddafi Troops Resume Misrata Attack

Libyan leader Col. Muammar Gaddafi’s forces continued to pound the city of Misrata Monday with heavy shelling, despite earlier promises to leave the city. Gaddafi’s forces, stationed outside Misrata, shelled a residential neighborhood, killing at least 12. The attack on the residential neighborhood killed women and children, set a car ablaze, destroyed a house and hit an aging hospital with shrapnel. Gaddafi’s forces had promised on Friday to turn Misrata over to the local tribes, but they gave no indication of abandoning their assault on the once-wealthy port city.
