WASHINGTON - The on-scene commander of the international coalition for Libya is confirming that civilians are under attack by government forces in Misrata, the North Africa nation's third
largest city.

U.S. Navy Adm. Samuel J. Locklear told Pentagon reporters Tuesday that the coalition is "considering all options" in light of the attacks, but he did not elaborate.

Misrata is one of the cities that President Barack Obama has demanded that forces of leader Moammar Gadhafi evacuate.
