Witnesses say Gaddafi forces have bombed the main fuel depot in Misrata, intensifying the regime's campaign against the rebel-held city that has been under siege for over two months.

Mohammed Abdullah, a Misrata resident, says smoke from the main fuel depot near the city port is still billowing into the skies following Saturday's overnight bombing.

A doctor at the hospital says nobody was injured. He says residents managed to contain the damage and salvage some fuel.

Amnesty International said Gaddafi's forces may have committed war crimes in Misrata where the humanitarian situation is rapidly deteriorating because of regime attempts to tighten its siege and block access by sea.
