Libya: 'Air Strike Destroys Gaddafi Residence'
Niall Paterson, defence correspondent, and Natalie Fahy An air strike has destroyed an administrative building at Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's residence, according to reports.
The news came as the White House said it did not recognise a ceasefire called by Colonel Gaddafi, and anti-aircraft fire continued in the skies above Tripoli.
The Libyan leader ordered armed forces to down weapons from 7.00pm, via a government spokesman at a press conference, but witnesses reported strong blasts and gunfire in Tripoli throughout the evening.
A 10 Downing Street spokesman responded to the Libyan announcement, following a meeting of the National Security Council, saying: "Everyone will recall that in recent days Colonel Gaddafi declared a ceasefire which was promptly violated.
"We said then we would judge him on his actions not his words - and we will do so again."

No, not Gaddafi’s clothes closet!!!
Yep, I agree....
So they are out to kill him then? So much for it just being a no fly zone.
these people are creepy!
And BTW, we're fighting for Al Qaeda...
“A 10 Downing Street spokesman responded to the Libyan announceme...”
Shouldn’t Mr. Fish n’ Chips be spending more time at the dentist and less at the microphone?
What a weird couple of days, huh?
>>No, not Gaddafis clothes closet!!!<<
From riches to rags — in that one spot?
(I am sure he is in one his 155 other palaces, just like any other modest muslim leader).
He can buy gaudy draperies anywhere. He'll get over it.
“A no fly zone involves blasting the hell out of the dictator’s compound, eh?”
I’m sure Mo Mar Mo Problems figured his Living Room wasn’t a good hiding spot. I think after the tent bombing 25 years ago, that the Frogs didn’t like, he is well fortified.
O, you’ll always be eight letters short.
The French have gone downright Machiavelli in this confrontation. They aim to do KaDaffy a grievous harm. They must remember some dealing where KaDaffy boned ‘em.
Gaddaffi was quoted as saying;
“I thought that SOB reagan was dead !”
is the destruction of a residence justified in the wording of the UN resolution??
survey says.....hussein dunham is a fraud....
What if it has anti-aircraft batteries on the roof? Aren't they a fashionable accessory for government strongmen? Just sayin'.
It’s been a weird decade IMHO. We are being so setup with this Libya mess! I truly believe we will see a terrible terror attack accelerated in the coming months...
But, the Taliban, Chavez, Cucinich and Farakhan are against us.
Very confusing this :P
Did they use Reagan’s old coordinates?
