"Libyan government artillery bombarded the besieged city of Misrata on Tuesday and rebels said they had beaten back two separate offensives by troops loyal to Muammar Gaddafi. Misrata rose up in revolt against Gaddafi's four-decade rule along with other cities in mid-February and is the lone rebel stronghold in the west of the country." (04/12/11)
