At least six blasts were heard early on Saturday in the Libyan capital, the largest to hit Tripoli in several weeks. Four of them shook the hotel hosting international media. NATO said it had hit a "command and control node".

Libyan TV reported NATO planes had bombed targets in the capital, causing damage and casualties. Meanwhile, Libyan officials said the government was ready to hold more talks with the United States and with rebels trying to overthrow Muammar Gaddafi.

Rebel leaders said Gaddafi must agree publicly to stand down before any talks could begin. Gaddafi is urging Libyans to persuade rebels to disarm and rejoin the loyal fold -- and to fight them if they don't.
