Tripoli: Five loud explosions rocked the
eastern part of the Libyan capital Tuesdsay, witnesses said, although they could not pinpoint the precise location of the blasts.

"We heard three loud explosions and we saw flames and
smoke billowing close to us," a resident of Ain Zara
neighbourhood in eastern Libya told reporters.

Two other detonations shook the same neighbourhood a few
minutes later, another witness said.

Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi`s office in his immense
Tripoli residence was destroyed in a NATO air strike early
today, while loud explosions were heard in several districts
of the capital as warplanes roared overhead.

But Gaddafi is safe and his morale is high, regime
spokesman Mussa Ibrahim said. "The leader is working from
Tripoli... The leader is in a safe place," he said.

Ibrahim said three people were killed and 45 wounded --
15 seriously -- in the NATO air strike.
