(Adds child killed, two others wounded, details)
MISRATA, Libya, June 20 A salvo of three rockets
fired by forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi killed a child in a
built-up area near the port in the rebel-held city of Misrata on
Monday, a witness said.
A 13-year-old child was killed in the attack on the
al-Rwaisat neighbourhood, a man called Mustafa al-Gafouf, who
identified himself as the child's uncle, told a Reuters reporter
outside a house damaged by one of the rockets.
Two more children were wounded, he added.
A rebel at the scene called Hassan Douwa said: "Is NATO
waiting for Gaddafi to kill us all before it does its job? Give
us the planes and we will do it ourselves."
Another house was also damaged in the attack but no one was
hurt. The third rocket exploded in an open area.
Rebels drove Gaddafi's forces out of Misrata in May after
weeks of fierce fighting but their plans to advance further west
toward the capital Tripoli have been slow at best.
Misrata is the only rebel stronghold in the west of Libya.
