Blasts heard where Gaddafi thought to be hiding: report

DUBAI (Reuters) - Explosions were heard near Bab al-Aziziyah, a large compound where Muammar Gaddafi is thought to be hiding, as rebels tighten their grip on the capital of Tripoli, Al Arabiya television reported.

Bab al-Aziziyah has been the focal point of fighting in Tripoli and rebel leaders have said that they do not expect the huge complex to fall easily.
