In Tripoli, the bombings resumed around 10:20 this morning. They are directed against certain objectives, under relentless NATO pounding.

The fighting also resumed around the Rixos Hotel where certain Libyan leaders and foreign journalists are still entrenched.

From the Rixos, the order was given by so-called "journalists" from the United States (*) to bring down Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya and Thierry Meyssan.

Three states have offered diplomatic protection to the Voltaire Network team.

However, trapped in the city, they have no way of reaching the respective embassies.

(*) These individuals have been identified and their names will be released in due course.
