At least one killed in Misrata shelling: resident

ALGIERS (Reuters) - At least one person was killed and several wounded early Sunday when forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi shelled a building in the rebel-held city of Misrata, a resident told Reuters.

"We have one confirmed dead and we don't know how many wounded. The ambulances are arriving now bringing the wounded," said the resident, who was speaking by telephone from the building now being used as a makeshift hospital.
