TRIPOLI, March 19 (Xinhua) -- A fighter plane was shot down in the rebel-controlled Libyan city of Benghazi Saturday morning, pan- Arab Al-Jazeera TV reported.

Gaddafi's forces used tanks and artillery fire in the latest offensive, Al-Jazeera reported, quoting witnesses as saying that an artillery bombardment hit the center of the Libyan rebel-held city of Benghazi on Saturday.

Libya authorities on Friday declared to halt all military operations in line with a UN resolution that imposed a no-fly zone over the North African country, while the rebels accused that the attacks of the pro-Gaddafi forces have continued.
