9 people were killed overnight in a NATO bombardment of the Libyan city of Sirte, Muammar Gaddafi's hometown.

A senior NATO official says coalition air strikes have degraded Gaddafi's main ground forces by 30-40 percent, but the battle appears to be heading to a stalemate.

In Misrata, the rebels' last western stronghold, hundreds of people are believed to have died. Food and medical supplies are running out and electricity is cut.

Rebels complain NATO has been inefficient in Misrata. Meanwhile, the Libyan government has urged rebels to sit down to peace talks but it says it will still fight against possible attacks by NATO forces.
