Libya crisis: Tension in Tripoli as strikes continue

Nato air strikes have again hit the compound of Col Muammar Gaddafi, hours after Libyan state TV showed footage purportedly of the leader in Tripoli.

Libyan government officials said the attack in the early hours of Thursday killed three people, although this cannot be independently verified.

Correspondents said three rockets hit the base and caused extensive damage.

A video of Col Gaddafi aired Wednesday was the leader's first appearance since his son was killed two weeks ago.
