CAIRO - A television station loyal to Muammar Gaddafi said on Thursday NATO warplanes were bombing his hometown of Sirte.

Al-Orouba TV said "Western, Qatari and UAE aggressors are bombing Sirte". It cited no source and gave no details.

Sirte has become Gaddafi's main stronghold after rebels swept through the Libyan capital Tripoli on Monday and captured his Bab al-Aziziya compound the following day.
