Libya: Gaddafi compound 'devastated' by bombing

Nato aircraft have bombed Colonel Gaddafi's compound in the Libyan capital, Tripoli, badly damaging three buildings.

The military strike, described by government spokesman Moussa Ibrahim as "an act of terrorism", killed three people and wounded 45.

The BBC's Ian Pannell was part of a group of journalists taken to the area by the Libyan government.
