Tripoli: Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi`s forces Thursday recaptured the country`s third largest city of Misurata, Xinhua reported, citing state TV.

On Wednesday, 11 people were reportedly killed in clashes between anti-government protesters and Gaddafi`s forces in Misurata, 150 km from Tripoli.

Meanwhile, government troops bombarded Benina airport, about 10 km south of the rebel stronghold of Benghazi, Libya`s second largest city, Al Jazeera said.
