Ten explosions have rocked southeastern suburb of the Libyan capital city of Tripoli as NATO continues its airstrikes against the North African country, reports says.

The blasts took place early Friday as NATO warplanes targeted the city, AFP reported.

According to Libyan state television, "Civilian and military sites" at the southeastern suburb of Khellat al-Ferjan had been targeted by "the colonialist aggressor."

On Thursday, a NATO airstrike killed a mother and her two children in the coastal town of Zliten, said a Libyan local official.

The Libyan government, which took reporters on a tour of the city, said they were killed in a NATO airstrike on a villa in a residential neighborhood.

The children's father, Mustafa Naji, said that two other family members were seriously injured in the raid.

NATO has been bombing Libya since March, claiming that its raids are intended to protect civilians from regime forces of Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi.

The Libyan government, however, says the Western military alliance is bombing civilian areas, causing casualties and damage.
