/ 05:43 AM March 19, 2011

BENGHAZI—Forces loyal to Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi were still attacking rebel positions on Friday, more than four hours after the government announced an immediate ceasefire, insurgents said.

Khaled al-Sayeh, from the rebel military council, told a press conference in Benghazi, that the “Gadhafi regime never stopped firing or attacking people. Until this moment he is still attacking places that are under siege.”

He said there was “sustained shelling” in Zintan, Ajdabiya and Misrata.
