Rebels in Misrata, which came under heavy shelling yesterday from troops loyal to Colonel Gaddafi, claimed the dictator’s forces had been using cluster bombs.

These pose a particular risk to civilians because they scatter small bomblets over a wide area.

Human Rights Watch also claimed the weapons were used, but Libyan government officials denied the accusations.

US secretary of state Hillary Clinton said the reports were “worrying”, and “one of the reasons why the fight in Misrata is so difficult.”

Human Rights Watch special adviser Fred Abrahams said it had “no doubt whatsoever” that cluster munitions had been used by regime forces and had photographic evidence that MAT-120 bombs were involved.
