TRIPOLI (AFP) - NATO-led air strikes on Thursday hit Moamer Gaddafi's compound, killing three people, the Libyan regime said, as rebels celebrated the capture of Misrata airport and fresh diplomatic coups in the West. The pre-dawn strikes in the capital Tripoli came just hours after Libyan state television showed what it said was footage of Gaddafi meeting tribal leaders, the first new video of him aired since an April 30 air strike that his government termed an attempt on his life. "Three people died -- two of them are journalists and one was their guide who was helping them film a documentary," government spokesman Mussa Ibrahim told a news conference in the Bab al-Aziziya compound that was held next to a large, water-filled crater. He identified the dead journalists as Ali al-Graw and Ismail al-Sharif and said they were filming "hundreds of people who were celebrating their resilience against NATO." The spokesman said Graw was a Libyan journalist and filmmaker, but did not provide further details on Sharif, or specify which news organisation the two worked for. He identified their guide as Abdel Salam Massoud Mohammed, 25, and said that "in addition to these three martyrs, we have 27 injured people" from various strikes. The strike, which appeared to have been by a "bunker-buster" bomb, which penetrates underground and then explodes, had hit a "sewage location," according to the spokesman. Journalists were blocked from inspecting a nearby staircase leading underground, which was surrounded by regime supporters.
