Tripoli rocked by blasts
10 powerful explosions rocked the Libyan capital Tripoli overnight in a new wave of airstrikes by NATO warplanes.
According to state television reports the airstrikes targeted “civilian and military” facilities in the city’s Hellat as-Ferjaneh suburb.
Many analysts say that, despite strong NATO support, the anti-Gaddafi opposition has so far been unable to achieve major victories against the government forces.
