AJDABIYA, Libya (AP) — Medical officials in the only western Libyan city still in the hands of rebels say that 243 people are now dead and more than 1,000 wounded after weeks of intense shelling by Moammar Gadhafi's forces.
They say government forces continue to hit Misrata with artilley, tank shells and sniper fire. One doctor said six people were killed Saturday, and Gadhafi's forces appeared to be deliberately targeting civilians.
