Street battles continue in Tripoli
NATO aircraft are dropping bombs and shooting missiles at government troops in Tripoli, first of all, at the Bab al-Azizia district with a complex of government buildings, the British Sky News TV channel reports.
Both conflicting parties are using heavy artillery alongside with rifles. Troops loyal to Gaddafi are trying to reestablish their control over a number of districts of the Libyan capital.
Muammar Gaddafi’s whereabouts are unknown but the British media say that he is still in Tripoli.
Several regions of Jamahiriya continue to resist the rebels.
