Nato strikes hit eight warships at ports in Libya
Nato air strikes have hit eight warships belonging to Col Muammar Gaddafi's forces in co-ordinated raids on Tripoli, Al Khums and Sirte.
In a statement, a spokesman said Nato had to take "decisive action" given Col Gaddafi's increasing use of naval assets to launch attacks on civilians.
The BBC's Andrew North was taken to Tripoli's port to see the damage caused by the bombing.
