TRIPOLI: Three explosions were heard early Wednesday as jets overflew the Libyan capital Tripoli, days after the regime said Libyan strongman Muammar al-Gaddafi escaped an air strike that killed one of his sons. Gunfire rang out following the second strike. A witness said that there were three explosions in total, and that smoke could be seen rising from one of the sites in eastern Tripoli. Early on Sunday, government spokesman Mussa Ibrahim said that Seif al-Arab Gaddafi , one of the Libyan leader's sons, and three of his grandchildren were killed in a NATO airstrike that he termed a bid to assassinate the strongman. An international coalition began carrying out strikes on forces loyal to Gaddafi on March 19, under a United Nations mandate to protect civilians in the country. NATO took command of operations over Libya on March 31.
