"Shelling by forces loyal to Libyan strongman Moamer Kadhafi killed 11 people and wounded dozens more -- the majority civilians -- around the besieged rebel enclave of Misrata, insurgents said. ... While rebel forces and NATO bombing have cleared Kadhafi troops from Misrata, the allies have failed to push loyalist forces beyond striking distance of the city. As projectiles rained down from the air, on the ground skirmishes continued. Sources said five rebels were killed in fighting at the western entrance to the city earlier in the day." (07/06/11)
