Libya state TV goes off air

Libyan opposition websites said rebels seized the headquarters of the television.



Nicosia: Libya`s official television
Al-Jamahiriya went off the air on Monday, correspondents said,
amid unconfirmed reports that rebels had seized the state
broadcaster.

Al-Jamahiriya stopped broadcasting at around 1930 IST,
with television screens suddenly turning black. Minutes later
the network`s logo appeared at the bottom right of the screen
with no picture or sound transmitted.

Libyan opposition websites said rebels, who have taken
large swathes of Tripoli where they control several
neighbourhoods, seized the headquarters of the television.

The claim could not be immediately verified.
