TUNIS - NATO air strikes hit weapons depots belonging to forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi near the town of Zintan on Friday, a resident said.

"The depots are situated 15 km southeast of Zintan. We could see buildings on fire in the distance," the resident called Abdulrahman said by phone. "First we heard aircraft and then we counted some 14 explosions. Some people used binoculars and saw buildings on fire."

"Rebels believe some of the depots were destroyed but not all. We are talking about huge facilities."
