TRIPOLI/BRUSSELS - NATO said on Saturday it had bombed three satellite dishes in Tripoli to stop "terror broadcasts" by Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, but state television remained on the air.

"A few hours ago NATO conducted a precision airstrike that disabled three ground-based Libyan state TV satellite transmission dishes in Tripoli," NATO spokesman Colonel Roland Lavoie said.

A video of his statement was distributed by NATO's press service under the headline "NATO silences Qadhafi's terror broadcasts".

But Libyan television continued to broadcast, and early on Saturday was showing a repeat of a political talk show from the previous evening.
