NATO launches intense attack on Tripoli

Text size Aa Aa

NATO has pounded the Libyan capital in a major escalation of strikes apparently aimed at Muammar Gaddafi’s compound. It was not clear if the 18 or so blasts were from warplanes – foreign journalists said they sounded more like cruise missile explosions.

Libyan government officials said three people were killed and over 150 injured but this has not been independently verified.

The NATO action comes after Britain and France announced they are to deploy attack helicopters to join the Libyan campaign.
