Libya: Gaddafi's compound in Tripoli bombed by Nato

A Nato air strike on the Libyan capital Tripoli has badly damaged buildings in Col Muammar Gaddafi's compound.

Reports said at least two powerful missiles struck the Libyan leader's sprawling Bab al-Azizia compound early on Monday.

Three TV stations briefly went off the air following the explosions.

The blasts were among the biggest to hit Tripoli so far, correspondents said. Nato is targeting Col Gaddafi's forces as he tries to quell a revolt.
