Libyan forces bombard rebels in the east and west

TOBRUK, Libya (AP) - Moammar Gadhafi's forces have been hammering rebels in the east and the west as the Libyan leader intensifies his offensive to retake control of the country he has ruled for more than four decades.
Government forces have been hammering Ajdabiya with nonstop shelling in a bid to rout rebels holding out in the strategic eastern city. The city's fall would open the way for Gadhafi's forces to advance farther into the long stretch of eastern Libya that has been in the control of the opposition throughout the monthlong uprising.
Residents say pro-Gadhafi troops also cut off communications today and began shelling Misrata - the last rebel-held city in the western half of the country.
