Gaddafi compound pounded
According to Al-Jazeera, NATO jets have been pounding the Tripoli compound of Muammar Gaddafi. The beleaguered leader is somewhere in hiding, as his opponents are encircling the capital. Pro-Gaddafi forces are reported to have foiled rebel attempts to break into Tripoli from the west.
Earlier on Sunday, the government offered the insurgents a truce. It also cautioned the West to expect an anti-Gaddafi bloodbath as soon as the rebels are in Tripoli.
Dozens more foreign nationals have left the embattled Libyan capital.
