From Al Jazeera:
Gaddafi’s troops have resumed their shelling of the rebel-held town of Zintan, about 90km south-west of the capital, a resident named Abdulrahman told Reuters by phone.
Gaddafi’s brigades started bombardment from the northern area half an hour ago. The bombardment is taking place now. The town is completely surrounded. The situation is very bad.
They are getting reinforcements. Troops backed with tanks and vehicles are coming. We appeal to the allied forces to come and protect civilians.
