Four explosions in quick succession have rocked the Libyan capital, Tripoli, as NATO jets flew over the city, a report says.

The targets of the early Thursday morning strikes and if there were any casualties were not clear, AFP reported.

The explosions came hours after Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi made his first
TV appearance since a NATO strike on his sprawling compound on April 30, in an attempt to quash rumors that he had been hit by the airstrikes, Press TV reported.

Earlier this week, NATO hit Libyan intelligence building and another structure used by the parliamentarians.
