NATO-led airstrikes targeted Libya's capital, Tripoli, early Sunday.

Witnesses said at least one explosion occurred near a residence of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi.

Libyan state television also reported airstrikes in the capital, but gave no details. There are no reports of any casualties.

On Saturday, one of at least six bombings occurred at a military command site in the Tripoli area.

The NATO airstrikes are intended to protect civilians and attack Libyan government military targets.
