Bullet points: A Libyan rebel fighter makes the Arabic words for “God is Great” out of used bullet casings on the road leading to the front line, on the outskirts of Ajdabiya, in eastern Libya, on Monday. U.N. humanitarian chief Valerie Amos said Monday that the Libyan government has promised her access to the besieged rebel city of Misrata, but with no guarantees that the assault by Moammar Gadhafi’s forces would cease. Misrata is the only city still partly held by rebels in Gadhafi-controlled western Libya. At least 267 people have been killed in Misrata, Libya’s third-largest city, during more than seven weeks of siege, the New York-based Human Rights Watch said Monday.
