TRIPOLI - Two loud explosions were heard in the Libyan capital Tripoli on Saturday evening, including one that shook the windows of the hotel where foreign journalists are staying.

NATO jets were heard rumbling overhead. The missiles appeared to fall behind the Rixos Hotel, which is near a major conference center, opposite the palace Muammar Gaddafi uses to host visiting dignitaries and not far from his Bab al-Aziziyah compound. It was not immediately clear what the target was.
