Gadhafi's Complex Struck in NATO Attack

ABC News(TRIPOLI, Libya) -- A NATO airstrike badly damaged two buildings in Colonel Moammar Gadhafi's residential compound in Tripoli, Libya Sunday night.

It was reported that one of the targeted sites hit by either large missiles or a bomb is often used by Gadhafi to hold meetings.

While four people were said to have suffered minor injuries, there was no word of Gadhafi's whereabouts during the attack.

One Libyan government official claimed that the air strike was an attack on the president's life but this account could not be verified.

In other developments, rebels in the western city of Misrata say they have consolidated control of the strategic city despite constant bombardment by government forces that left dozens dead over the weekend.
