International forces have launched new air strikes near Libya’s opposition-held western city of Misrata, witnesses told the BBC. Forces loyal to leader Moammar Gadhafi initially pulled back, but Misrata residents say snipers have continued to target people from rooftops.

Col Gadhafi’s forces also resumed their pounding of Zintan, near the Tunisian border, according to reports. The BBC’s Defense and Security Correspondent Nick Childs joins us from London.
