Pro-Gadhafi forces are bringing civilians from nearby towns to use as human shields in Misrata city, Reuters reported March 21, citing a rebel spokesman. Civilians from Zawiyat al Mahjoub and Al Ghiran were forced to carry the official Libyan flag and chant for leader Moammar Gadhafi. “They know we are not going to shoot women and children and old people,” the rebel spokesman said by telephone. The report could not be independently verified and a comment from Libyan officials was not immediately obtained. Residents said the pro-Gadhafi forces entered the city in civilian clothes and snipers on rooftops shot anyone within range.
