At least 25 loud explosions rocked Tripoli midday Tuesday, as NATO airstrikes hit a military base and near Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's compound.
Libya State TV reported that buildings and infrastructure near Gadhafi's compound were destroyed in the strike.
The blasts Tuesday and others Monday, that Libyan officials said hit state television buildings, elicited heated responses from a government spokesman.
"We believe NATO understands that its military campaign is failing miserably," said Musa Ibrahim, the government spokesman. "No one has the right to shape Libya's future except for Libyans."
Ibrahim said Tuesday's morning blasts hit the popular guard compound and revolution compound, which are military barracks near Gadhafi's Bab al-Aziziya compound.FULL STORY
