Libya: Misrata Rebels rejoice at Gaddafi arrest warrant

The rebel-held city of Misrata in Libya erupted with pleasure with the news that Muammar Gaddafi, his son and the head of Libyan intelligence have been served with arrest warrants by the International Criminal Court.

For weeks the city was pounded with artillery and rockets by Gaddafi's troops, and there is little love for the dictator here, accused by the ICC of killing civilian protestors from the moment they rose up in February.
