The building, about 50 metres from the tent where Libyan leader, Moamer Kadhafi generally meets and greets guests, were demolished. Libyan spokesman, Moussa Ibrahim told journalists that the building was hit by a missile.

“This was a barbaric bombing which could have hit hundreds of civilians gathered at the residence of Moamer Kadhafi about 400 metres away from the building which was hit,” Ibrahim said.

He denounced the “contradictions in Western discourses,” saying: “Western countries say they want to protect civilians while they bomb the residence knowing there are civilians inside.”

Kadhafi supporters rushed towards the complex at Bab el-Aziziya in the south of the Libyan capital after a rumour spread that a plane had been shot down and crashed.

“Where is the plane?” several of them, mainly youths, cried.

Smoke rose from residence and barracks as anti-aircrafts guns fired shots.

Tripoli city was rocked by powerful explosions late Sunday, one of which was coming from the area around Kadhafi’s residence.

Kadhafi’s arm has announced that they will cease fire on Sunday in response to the African Union call for an immediate ending of hostilities. However, the United States accused Tripoli of breaching the truce almost immediately.

“I sincerely hope and urge the Libyan authorities to keep their word,” United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said during a visit to Egypt.

“They have been continuing to attack the civilian population. This (offer) has to be verified and tested,” he told a news conference in Cairo.

Kadhafi government had declared a ceasefire on Friday after UN Security Council resolution 1973 authorized any necessary measures, including a no-fly zone, in order to protect the civilians.

But his troops continued attacking the Benghazi rebels, causing action by US, British and French forces from Saturday in line with the resolution.
