Libya jets bomb arms depots
Seif al-Islam, the son of Muammar Gaddafi, says Libyan armed forces had launched air strikes on arms depots outside urban areas, state television reports quoting the official Jana news agency.
“The armed forces have bombarded arms depots situated far from populated areas,” the broadcaster reported in a banner across the screen.
There had been reports from Libya that warplanes had begun indiscriminate bombing across the capital, leaving scores dead, as long-time leader Muammar Gaddafi clings to power.
Two Libyan air force colonels had fled to the Mediterranean island of Malta in fighter jets saying they had refused orders to bomb protesters.
The men said they were forced to flee their base in eastern Benghazi when it was taken over by protesters.
“One of the pilots requested political asylum” after the two descended from their single-seater Mirage F1 jets, a government spokesman said.
