At least 18 loud explosions have been heard in the Libyan capital in what appears to be the heaviest night of bombing since Nato’s campaign against Colonel Gaddafi began.
Tripoli has been rocked by the blasts, which are thought to have been mainly targeting Col Gaddafi’s Bab al Aziziya compound.
Plumes of black smoke were seen rising above the city and pro-government supporters loudly beeped their car horns and firing guns, shouting their support for the leader.
Speaking from Tripoli, Sky News reporter Mark Stone said so many explosions in one night was “unheard of”.
