Libya: Explosions heard around Gaddafi palace

Reports coming out of Tripoli this evening speak of missiles hitting a Libyan anti-missile defense station close to the Gaddafi presidential compound and that plumes of fire and smoke were seen rising out of several buildings in the area. This afternoon Danish jet fighters joined the European coalition.

U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen told CNN the forces of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi have shown little ability to counter coalition firepower. When asked if Gaddafi was considered to be a target Admiral Mullen said Gaddafi was not a target, but if he happened to be in a building which was a target it could be a problem for him.
