NATO says it has bombed three satellite dishes in Tripoli to stop what it calls terror broadcasts by Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. But the country's state TV remains on air and has condemned NATO's operation it says was targeting its journalists.

Libyan Broadcasting Corporation issued a statement, saying three employees were killed and 15 wounded in the strike, but NATO has not immediately confirmed the casualties.

NATO spokesman Colonel Roland Lavoie says NATO had disabled the ground-based satellites in a precision air strike, in line with its mission.

Rabea Mukhtar, picture editor of Libyan TV, said, "We will continue in our struggle. We will not be frightened or run away. They bombed us before and this is the second time they do so. Even if they bomb us again four or five times, we will continue doing our duties and Libyan Television will remain channel number one in the world whether they like it or not."
