TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) -- Libyan officials say gunmen loyal to Moammar Gadhafi have crossed the border from Algeria to attack revolutionary forces in a border city, killing six people.

Col. Ahmed Bani, a military spokesman for revolutionary forces, says the attack on Ghadames was on Saturday but the gunmen had been crossing in cars filled with arms for several days.

He told reporters Sunday that the attackers belonged to a unit that had been under the command of Gadhafi's son, Khamis.

An official from Ghadames, Ali al-Mana, confirmed the attack and said six people were killed and 63 others wounded.
