"Several explosions rocked Tripoli early today as NATO warplanes flew over the capital, the bastion of Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi's tottering regime. A slew of explosions were heard about 1am (0900 AEST) in the heart of the seaside capital where Gaddafi's residential complex is located, as well as in several areas in the west of the city. Meanwhile, US broadcaster NBC reported that Gaddafi was preparing to flee his country." (08/19/11)
