TRIPOLI - NATO staged an airstrike near Muammar Gaddafi's compound in Tripoli late on Saturday, and an opposition website said Libyan government forces shelled residential areas outside the rebel-held city of Misrata.

Libyan officials said the alliance had attacked close to Gaddafi's Bab al-Aziziyah complex, and Reuters Television pictures showed a column of smoke rising over the capital.

However, there was no immediate word on what the target of the attack was, and reporters escorted by Libyan officials were unable to get close to the site.
