Residents in the Libyan city of Misrata say they are still being bombarded and shelled by pro-Qaddafi forces Friday despite Libya declaring an immediate halt to military action on anti-government forces.
"Qaddafi's forces are bombing the city with artillery shells and tanks. We now have 25 people dead at the hospital, including several little girls," Dr Khaled Abou Selha told Reuters.
A Libyan government spokesman says that no military operations were launched on Misrata or anywhere else, according to Reuters.
A Libyan rebel spokesman also dismissed the cease-fire announcement, claiming Qaddafi's forces are still attacking key cities in the east and the west.
Mustafa Gheriani, a spokesman for the national opposition council based in Benghazi, said there is "no cease-fire."
Gheriani said regime forces are shelling the eastern city of Ajdabiya and Misrata, the last rebel-held city in the western half of the country.
The opposition has expressed hope the U.N. resolution would help turn the tide in their favor after days of fierce fighting.
