DUBAI - Libyan rebels battling forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi attacked the gates of his fortified Bab al-Aziziya compound in Tripoli on Tuesday, Arab news channel Al Arabiya reported.

"The revolutionaries are trying to get in through the Old Gate on the western side. If they're successful, the fighting will move inside the compound," Muftah Ahmad Othman, a rebel in Tripoli, told the news channel.

Britain's Sky TV also reported that smoke could be seen billowing from the compound following a NATO air strike.
