Gaddafi's office destroyed in air strike

Gaddafi's office destroyed in air strike
TRIPOLI - Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi's office in his immense Tripoli residence was destroyed in an air strike early Monday, an AFP journalist said.

A Libyan official accompanying journalists at the scene said 45 people were wounded, 15 seriously, in the bombing. He added that he did not know whether there were victims under the rubble.

"It was an attempt to assassinate Colonel Gaddafi," he affirmed.

A meeting room facing Gaddafi's office was badly damaged by the blast.

NATO warplanes had already late Friday targeted the Bab Al-Aziziya district, where the presidential compound is located.
