Explosions hit Tripoli at dawn

Six explosions have been heard in the centre of the Libyan capital, Tripoli, near the fortified Bab al-Aziziya compound of Col Muammar Gaddafi.

Footage shows blasts in the capital and smoke rising in the area at dawn on Thursday.

The compound has been the target of a number of Nato air strikes in recent months.
