Explosions thundered across the capital of Libya Thursday as NATO planes struck Moammar Gadhafi's compound in Tripoli.
The attack is part of NATO's effort to help the three month old rebellion that is trying to oust the Libyan dictator from power.
NATO, which has hit the Libyan capital repeatedly this week, said Thursday's attack successfully hit "a large command and control bunker complex in downtown Tripoli that was used to coordinate attacks against civilian populations."
Libbyan government spokesman Moussa Ibrahim said three people were killed in Thursday's strikes
Ibrahim spoke out against the way NATO is trying to oust Gadhafi.
"All they want is to break our morale, to cause death and destruction everywhere," he said.
"People are being killed, every single day, every single night," he added.
A defiant Gadhafi appeared on television Thursday with tribal leaders.It was his first public appearance since air strikes killed his son two weeks ago.
