ALGIERS - Forces loyal to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi are shelling the rebel-held western city of Misrata and casualties include four children killed when the car they were in was hit, a resident told Reuters on Tuesday.

"The situation here is very bad. Tanks started shelling the town this morning," the resident, called Mohammed, told Reuters by telephone from outside the city's hospital.

"Snipers are taking part in the operation too. A civilian car was destroyed killing four children on board, the oldest is aged 13 years," he said.
