Libyan state television has broadcast pictures of what it says are civilian victims of the allied bombing.
It said there had been casualties in several cities: Tripoli, Sirte, Benghazi, Misrata and Zuwarah.
The commentary described them as martyrs.
The Libyan prime minister was shown making bedside visits as injured patients declared their support for Gaddafi.
The report’s claims cannot be independently confirmed.
Opposition sources have reacted with scepticism. One said civilian casualties of attacks by Gaddafi loyalists had been taken away and portrayed as victims of allied raids.
