Fresh NATO air strikes on the Libyan capital Tripoli on Friday night targeted the district where Muammar Gaddafi has his residence.

A powerful explosion occurred in the Bab Al-Aziziya district, not far from the city centre, followed by another a few minutes later.

It was the fourth consecutive night that this part of the city has been targeted with air strikes.

Earlier, the Jana news agency said civilian sites in the Al-Qariet region south of the capital, had been targeted in air raids.
