CAIRO, May 8 (Reuters) - Libyan state television said on Sunday that groups of rebels in the insurgent-held city of Misrata have turned themselves in to government forces.

Al-Jamahiriya television gave no exact numbers but quoted a military spokesman as saying that some of those who had surrendered made recorded "confessions" which will be broadcast on television later.
