Shortages add to Misurata's woes

Supply of basic goods is dangerously low as the besieged Libyan city’s port comes under fire.

    Muammar Gaddafi's forces may have been driven out of Misurata, but everyday life in the shattered city is tough.

    People formed long queues as essential goods were in shortage in this besieged city in Libya's west.

    Uncertain days lie ahead for the city's population as the port, the lifeline of the city, came under attack.
