Tripoli says proof of rebel corruption is intact


Bombs early this morning in Tripoli are said to have struck a Libyan police building and the headquarters of the anti-corruption service. Libyan officials said NATO was responsible. A French news agency journalist confirmed the destruction came in a raid by Western-led coalition forces.

Libyan government spokesman Moussa Ibrahim suggested that Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s opponents got NATO to attack these buildings because this is where the evidence is kept of financial and political corruption by rebel leaders. But, he said, the files had survived.

On the outskirts of Tawarga, to the east of Tripoli, as a Hague-based International Criminal Court prosecutor pressed for an arrest warrant for Gaddafi, rebels arrested another of his soldiers.

A euronews correspondent with the rebels, Alberto Arce, said: “They brought him to a hospital in Misrata, where prisoners are questioned. The rebels are using a school as a prison, where they are keeping around 180 men.”
