Heavy anti-aircraft fire lit up the sky and loud explosions could be heard in Tripoli, capital of Libya, after nightfall on Tuesday.
The source of the explosions was not immediately clear, but the gunfire appeared to signal a fourth night of US and European air operations over Libya to enforce a no-fly zone.
In the previous night’s operations, the coalition air campaign suffered its first loss with the crash of a US fighter jet in the rebel-held east.
Both crew ejected safely.
The no-fly zone is intended to protect civilians from attack by forces loyal to Moammar Gadhafi in their battles with rebel fighters.
