Gaddafi's forces shot down a NATO helicopter

The Libyan armed forces have shot down a NATO helicopter off the coastal town of Zintan. The news, announced by the Libyan state television, was re-launched satellite broadcaster al-Arabiya. According to a military spokesman quoted by the issuer, it would be the third set down by the army loyal to Colonel Muammar Gaddafi.

The news, which could fall into the propaganda of the regime, has not received any independent confirmation. So far the Alliance has never told of killing of its aircraft to its operations in Libya. RAID - the night were carried out new raids on Tripoli NATO and some surrounding areas. The Arab satellite television speak of strong explosions in central Baghdad around midnight.

Many of the blasts have affected the residence of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's bunker, which according to the covenant would be largely destroyed.
