NATO airstrikes hit Tripoli, heaviest bombing yet

NATO warplanes bombard targets in Tripoli with more than 20 airstrikes early Tuesday, striking around Moammar Gadhafi's housing complex in what appeared to be the heaviest night of bombing of the Libyan capital since the Western coalition launch its air campaign against his forces.

The rapid string of strikes, all within less than half an hour, set off thunderous booms that rattled windows sent heavy, acrid-smelling plumes of smoke over the city, counting from an area close to Gadhafi's rambling Bab al-Aziziya complex.

Government spokesman Moussa Ibrahim said at least three people were killed and dozens hurt in NATO strikes that beleaguered what he express as buildings used by unpaid assistant units of the Libyan army.
