TRIPOLI - At least two powerful explosions were heard in central Tripoli early on Saturday evening, a Reuters correspondent in the Libyan capital said.

Aircraft could be heard overhead at the time of the blasts, before sunset. NATO has been bombing targets connected with leader Muammar Gaddafi's government since March. Air strikes during daylight hours are relatively rare.
