Another round of airstrikes in Libya

BENGHAZI, Libya (AP) -- Anti-aircraft fire has lit up the sky in Tripoli once again. And explosions could be heard in Libya's capital late Wednesday.

A senior government official says coalition aircraft hit a fuel depot in Tripoli.

Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Kaim at first denied reports that Moammar Gadhafi's compound in Tripoli was hit earlier, then backtracked and said he had no information about that. He said other targets Wednesday were near Benghazi and Misrata.

A doctor in Misrata said Gadhafi's tanks fled after the airstrikes, giving a much-needed reprieve to the besieged coastal city,

NATO ships have started patrolling off Libya's coast to enforce an arms embargo.
