Nato bombs have hit what appeared to be a bunker in Col Gaddafi’s Tripoli compound, as the Libyan government said it is ready to withdraw from Misurata and let tribes deal with rebels in the besieged city.
Government spokesman Mussa Ibrahim said three people were killed by the “very powerful explosion” in a car park near Gaddafi’s Bab al-Aziziyah compound.
Reuters reporters said the area was surrounded by a wall and guarded by watchtowers and soldiers.
They saw two large holes in the ground where the bombs had torn through soil and reinforced concrete, to pierce what appeared to be an underground bunker.
