NATO jets target Libya state TV

NATO has conducted thousands of sorties over Libya since March

Latest reports indicate that NATO-led warplanes have dropped several bombs on the offices of the Libyan state broadcaster in the capital Tripoli.

The Libyan information ministry said the NATO jets struck the state broadcaster's building and its adjoining installations on Monday.

No detail has been given on possible deaths or injuries.

Reports say NATO jets have inflicted heavy damage to the government buildings located in the troubled area.

NATO has conducted thousands of sorties over Libya since it assumed control of a military campaign to impose a no-fly zone over the country and save civilian lives in late March.

The US and NATO have unleashed a punishing, UN-mandated offensive against Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi to pressure him into giving up power.

However, the air strikes by the military alliance have killed scores of civilians as well as revolutionary fighters.

NATO has recently stepped up its aerial raids over Libya with the introduction of French and British attack helicopters.

They have been pummeling the regime's military installations, communication centers and armories.

Fighting also continues on the ground between pro-Gaddafi forces and revolutionary fighters.

Latest reports say Gaddafi forces have fired rockets into the eastern town of Ajdabiyah, which is in the hands of the revolutionaries.

There are also reports of fighting near the front line outside the city.

Libya has been the scene of fierce fighting between pro-Gaddafi troops and anti-regime forces since mid-February.

Revolutionary forces want an end to Gaddafi's decades-long rule. They have frequently accused Gaddafi's regime of using media as a propaganda tool.

Some analysts say the main motive behind the Western attack on Libya is the vast oil reserves in the North African country.
